The Ashanti regional Police Command has interdicted a police officer in its jurisdiction for granting signing bail for Kumasi’s alleged most wanted cocaine dealer.

The alleged narcotic drug dealer, Kofi Asamoah was arrested in 2015 with 82 grammes of cocaine at his hideout at Atonsu in the Ashanti Region.

A Kumasi High Court granted Asamoah  bail to the tune of GHc 100,000 with two sureties one of which was to be justified.

But Warrant Officer Evans Kubeadzor endorsed the bail without ensuring all the requirements were met.

Ashanti regional Police Prosecutor, Emmanuel Ackonor told Kumasi-based ultimate FM that "he (the suspect) was granted bail on the 18th and the same 18th, within some few minutes, the bail has been executed and per the condition that was given by the Judge, it means that it will take more than five days even to do the authentication of the documents that has to be brought to the registrar, and within a twinkle of an eye, the Police Officer had endorsed the bail for the guy to go”.

He added that an investigation has started to find out what truly happened.

“A disciplinary action has been initiated. For now, he has been served with interdiction letter but we are still investigating what made him sign something he is not a party to because we don’t understand how quickly that bail was executed.”
