Category: General News 16

The Sunyani District Court “A”, presided over by Mr. Jojo Amoah Hagan, on Thursday adjourned the case in which two men are standing trial for setting fire to a toll booth at Fiapre.

Mark Tetteh and Bismark Baafi, are facing a charge of causing unlawful damage to state property and they have both pleaded not guilty.

They would be making their next appearance on Monday, March 13.

Tetteh is on a GH¢100,000.00 bail, with two sureties, and has been made to deposit GH¢10,000.00 with the court as part of the bail conditions.

Baafi, on his part, is on GH¢3,000.00 bail, with two sureties.

The adjournment was at the instance of the prosecutor, Police Sergeant Christian Y. Sethorglo, to allow for a report from the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS).

Tetteh, the assembly member for Dumasua, in the Sunyani West District, is alleged to have led a mob to burn the booth immediately after the declaration of the outcome of last December 07 election by the Chairperson of Electoral Commission.  

A cashier of the Ghana Highways Authority made a formal report to the police and he handed himself in.
Baafi was later apprehended during police investigations.
