An Accra Circuit Court on Wednesday granted bail to seven suspected terrorists to the tune of GH¢20, 000.
According to Starr News’ Court correspondent, Wilberforce Asare, the seven suspects were arrested in Salaga by the Northern Regional police in December last year in the Northern region for illegal possession of illicit weapons including two AK 47 assault rifles.
The case presided over by Judge Aboagye Tandoh at an Accra Circuit Court Wednesday admitted the seven to bail in a short ruling due to the fact that the prosecutors have been unable to get a response from the Attorney General’s department despite forwarding the docket as far back as 10th February 2016.
The Northern regional police spokesperson ASP Ebenezer Tetteh who confirmed the arrest to Starr News said the rifles were without magazines and that the arrest of “two prime suspects” led to the rounding up of the other five in a village called Dzanton Daboase near Salaga.
He added that upon the arrest of the suspects a laptop found in the room of one of the accused persons has videos of Taliban and other terrorism related sessions. He named the two as Mahama Salifu Mustao and Issah Suale.
The case has since been adjourned to the 29th April 2016 as suspects are still in custody pending their bail.
