Kwabenya cell break case adjourned to March 15

An Accra Circuit Court presided over by Justice Aboagye Tandoh has adjourned the case involving the Kwabenya cell breakers to 15 March 2018.

The adjournment follows the inability of the prosecution to complete his investigations.

Chief Superintendent Kweku Bempah, told the court on Monday, 12 March 2018 that, the police is not ready with its investigations. According to him, the police is equally dealing with other important issues which have crippled them to speed up with their investigations.

Justice Tandoh had set March 9, 12, 14 and 15 to commence speedy trial at the last hearing.

It is recalled that seven suspected criminals broke cell at the Kwabenya police station on Sunday, 21 January 2018. The seven suspects were assisted by a group of armed robbers to escape from police custody and the attack led to the death of one police officer at the station.

Two others involved in the cell break-Prince Osei and Atta Kojo-are already serving 30 months imprisonment each.

The two were convicted based on their own plea and the sentence will run concurrently.
