The case involving 13 persons belonging to a pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) group by name Delta Force has been adjourned to the 5th of September for further hearing by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Court.
These persons earlier this year are alleged to have attacked and forcefully removed from office the Ashanti Regional Security liaison officer.
Earlier in the court today, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Okyere Darko told the Circuit court presided over by Mrs Mary Nsenkyire that investigations had been completed.
He also announced to the court that the docket had been sent to the Attorney Generals Department for advice.
Announcing the adjournment, Mrs Nsenkyire said pending the advice from the Attorney General’s department the case stand adjourned to the 5th September, 2017.
She believed by the 5TH of next month all will be clear for the case to be continued.
There was heavy security presence at the court today, as the Police could be seen everywhere in the precincts of the court.
Descending from the police van today, the 13 delta force members wore somber faces and were seated calmly on their seats during the proceedings at the court.
Occasionally, you could see some of the 13 members bending on their seats to stretch their backs but uttered no words.
Immediately after court proceedings, uniformed armed men from the special unit from the Police department whisked the 13 away.
