According to the family, they are of the belief Gregory should be placed in prison custody after his committal to the high court for the muster trial to begin.

The family is also of the belief that the high court judge has been overburdening the state prosecutors in the matter with some of his demands such as prosecution witnesses be brought in time for a speedy trial.

Gregory Afoko is facing charges of conspiracy to commit crime and murder. He, together with one Asabke Alangdi who is on the run, have been accused of pouring a substance believed to be acid on the former NPP regional chairman which led to his death.
