Eight members of the group, calling itself the ‘Delta Force’ and reported to be aligned with the governing of New Patriotic Party (NPP), accused of storming the KMA Circuit Court to free 13 of their colleagues from lawful custody, were on Thursday granted bail by a Kumasi Circuit Court.

Ebenezer Opoku, Samuel Yeboah, Kofi Fosu, Christian Anokye, Kwame Fimpong, Suleman Wadud, Abass Caesar, and Eric Kusi, had been remanded in prison by a lower court, when they appeared before it, last Monday.

They were however dissatisfied with the order and decided to take their case to the High Court to have it reversed.
Justice Francis Obiri, who heard their application, freed them on bail of GH?10,000.00 each, with two sureties to be justified.

They were additionally ordered to report to the police on every Wednesday, until the bail conditions are reviewed.

The eight would return to the circuit court to answer charges of disturbing a court session, resisting arrest and freeing the 13 persons, who were in lawful custody on April 18.

They had all pleaded not guilty to the charges.
