An Accra High Court has finally granted murder suspect Gregory Afoko bail.

Gregory Afoko

Mr. Afoko has been on trial in the last four years for the accusation that he murdered the former Upper East Regional Chairman of the NPP, Adams Mahama.

Adams Mahama was attacked with acid on his way home on the 20th of May 2015 by two people and later died of extensive acid burns.

Investigations disclosed that his death was caused by the two persons, but the Police only managed to arrest the first suspect, Gregory Afoko.


The second suspect, Alangdi, however fled the jurisdiction in the days after the murder and has been on the run since.

In January this year, the Attorney General (AG) filed a nolle prosequi to discontinue the trial of Gregory Afoko.

The application comes after the arrest of Asabke Alangdi.

According to Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Asabke Alangdi, was arrested in Ivory Coast following a collaboration between Ghana's security agencies and Interpol.


"Ghana's security agencies working in collaboration with Interpol have arrested the second suspect in the murder of Mr. Adams Mahama, Former Chairman of the NPP in the Upper East Region. The fugitive AsabkeAlangdi was arrested in Ivory Coast after over a year of surveillance and search during which period he moved camps from Burkina Faso to Ivory Coast," he said at a press briefing.
