Robbery Van Attacks: Four Police Officers Refused Bail
The four police constables who were arraigned for their role in the Bullion Van attacks had their bail plea denied by the Circuit Court in Accra, presided over by Her Honour Patricia Amponsah.
The four, together with a civilian who is alleged to be a scrap dealer, are charged with two counts of attempting to commit a crime, namely robbery and abetment.
Constable Yaro Afisu Ibrahim (A2), Constable Albert Ofosu (A2), Constable Richard Boadu (A3), and Constable Rabiu Jambedu (A3) are the four policemen (A4).
Another person has been charged, Razak Alhassan aka Zak (A5), who is alleged to be a junk dealer.
DSP Sylvester Asare Asare told the court in court on Monday, March 28, 2022, that their investigation is not yet complete.
According to him, numerous investigations are continuing, and he requested that the accused persons be remanded for additional investigation.
According to DSP Asare, since the last court appearance on March 9, several revelations have surfaced, and four additional dockets concerning the accused have been created in the case.
He also informed the court that some of the people named in the case are being pursued by the police.
The lawyers for the five accused persons, Devine Dotse, A1, Eric Ansah, A2, Jango Nuhu, A3, Paul Kumi, A4, and Justine Pwavra Teriwajjah, A5, all filed bail applications for their clients.
After hearing all sides, the court decided to approve the prosecution’s request due to the ongoing investigation.
Mrs. Amponsah, Her Honour, encouraged the prosecution to get its house in order so that the accused’s plea could be taken.
The case has been rescheduled until April 5, 2022.
