A Circuit Court in Accra on Monday admitted Alhaji Abdul Karim Grunsah, owner of King Failsal Football Club, to bail in the sum of GH¢20,000 with two sureties.

This was after he had appeared before the court following a bench warrant to effect his arrest.

Alhaji Grunsah stood as surety for Mohammed Abdulai, a suspect who was nabbed by the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service but could not be traced by the Police.

Mr. Edward Anokye, counsel for Alhaji Grunsah, told the court that the suspect was on a farm at Sankore in the Eastern Region.

According to counsel, the court should grant Alhaji Grunsah ample time to enable him produce Abdulai in court.

Applying for bail for Alhaji Grunsah, Mr. Anokye indicated that his client had fixed places of abode in Kumasi and Accra and he (Alhaji Grunsah) came to court as soon as he was invited by the Police.

Defence counsel further stated that Alhaji Grunsah was capable of producing Abdulai, adding, he (Alhaji Grunsah) has sureties who are independent and of sufficient means to execute his bail.

The court after considering the submissions granted Alhaji Grunsah bail and adjourned the matter to December 5.

On November 7, this year, Police Detective Inspector Isaac Agbemehia moved an application of Forfeiture of recognizance and sought for bench warrant before the Court presided over by Ms Helen Amoah.

According to the Police they were unable to trace the whereabouts of Abdulai who was to appear in court.

“Effort made for the surety (Alhaji Grunsah) to produce the suspect in Court had failed,” the Police declared.

On April 23, this year, Abdulai was granted police inquiry bail in the sum of GH 20,000 cedis, which Alhaji Grunsah signed on behalf of the suspect.

However, the Police contend that they were unable to trace the suspect, hence filed an application in court to enable Alhaji Grunsah to produce him.
