An Accra Circuit Court ordered Luqman Abubakari and three other persons to either sign the bond and comply accordingly, or serve two years in prison.

They were arrested when they entered the premises of a television station, TV3 Network Limited, in a bid to halt an interview.

The TV station was due to feature a student, Julian Mawuse Cobbina, who also laid claim to the presidency.

Abubakari arrived at the station in the company of his colleague students and sought to disrupt the programme. At that point, security persons present arrested and detained them.

They were consequently arraigned before a court on charges of conspiracy to commit crime, unlawful entry, assault and rioting. They pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

They were however found guilty by the courts and convicted. On the grounds of a plea from their counsel, Gary Nimako Marfo, that they were first time offenders, they were spared the custodial sentence.
