Nimako Danquah who has been arraigned before a District Court in Tarkwa was denied a plea by a former NPP constituency Treasurer Daniel Kofi Dwumah to settle the case out of court, noting that the case before him was criminal in nature and so it cannot be settled out of court.

The case was adjourned to Thursday April 19 after counsel for the accused wrote to the court announcing his absence until April 19. He was bailed in the sum of GH 1,000 with one surety.

The parties to the case are to return to court on April 19, 2017.
