Delta Force members’ case adjourned to May 18 Some 13 members of the Delta Force are standing trial for assault.
A Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Circuit Court on Thursday adjourned a case in which 13 members of Delta Force, a vigilante group affiliated to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) are standing trial for assault, to May 18, 2017.
The suspects are being prosecuted following their assault on a certain George Agyei, who had been appointed as the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator.
The prosecutor, ACP Okyere Darko, pleaded that ample time be given them for further investigations. Lawyer for the accused persons, Matthew Appiah, has argued that his clients are not guilty because the police have no reason to arrest them.
The presiding Judge Her Honor, Mary Nsenkyire, granted the request of the prosecutor and adjourned the case.
