Court throws out Ibrahim Dey’s stay of execution against defamation suit for Baba Kamara

Alhaji Baba Kamara Versus Ibrahim Dey Abubakari.

Re: matters arising

On 7th August 2019 the High Court, Accra dismissed an application for stay of execution of the judgment of the court dated 5th April 2019 ordering Ibrahim Dey Abubakari to pay the sum of one million, five hundred thousand Ghana Cedis (Gh1,500,000.00) to Alhaji Baba Kamara for defamation.

In the said application, Ibrahim Dey Abubakari stated that he was unemployed and therefore could not pay the sum of one million, five hundred thousand Ghana Cedis (Gh1,500,000.00).

The High Court dismissed the said application on grounds that he did not raise any exceptional circumstances. The effect of the ruling is that Ibrahim Dey Abubakari is required to pay the said amount forthwith.
