Court remands 'three grenade men'

An Accra Magistrate court has remanded into police custody, three men arrested in possession of explosives.

This was after the police prosecutor pleaded with the court to give them two weeks as they conduct investigations.

Accused persons are Ismaili Ali Musah, Abdul Karim and Osmani Alhassan who were arrested Monday morning at Odorkor in Accra.

The Police found seven grenades in possession of Abdul Karim who directed police to arrest the two others.

It is unclear the motives of the suspect even though unconfirmed reports have linked one of them to international terrorist group ISIS.

Arraigned Tuesday, the Police prosecutor said the explosives are part of ammunition belonging to the Ghana Armed Forces.

The court was adjourned to January 30, 2018.
