The court case involving Apostle Kofi Nkansah Sarkodie, the man who defied a COVID-19 ban on public gathering has been adjourned to June 11.

The Kumasi-based pastor and three others are facing the Asokwa District Court for unlawful assembly, after they held a church service at the Open Arms Ministries at North Suntreso in the Ashanti Regional capital.

At a third court sitting on Tuesday, May 19, prosecution prayed for more time to allow it to hold discussions with the office of the Attorney General on “whether to maintain or amend the charges against the suspects.”

“So we pray for adjournment so we make our position clear to the court”, the court heard.

The court presided over by Rosemarie Afua Asante (Mrs) granted the request and adjourned the case to June 11, 2020.
