Court adjourns Kwabenya cell break case 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, March 12, 2018 that, the police was not ready with its investigations.

According to him, the police was equally dealing with other important issues, which has crippled them to speed up with their investigations.

Justice Tandoh therefore, 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.
