The Tamale Magistrate Court has discharged three (3) of the six (6) accused persons alleged to be involved in the murder of Police Sergent Agartha Nana Nabin  for lack of evidence following the advice of the Attorney General’s Department.

The court was presided over by Judge, Amadu Seidu.

According to the State Prosecutor, Inspector Victor Kwafo, the three accused Persons Mahama Nashiru, Samuel Atutiga and Hanan Alhassan alias Gurundoo, were discharged on grounds that prosecutors could not provide enough evidence against them.

The three other accused persons Anas Assahaku, Zulika Abduallah, Issahaku Yakubu alias Kanbon-Naa have, however been remanded into prison custody to reappear on October 24.

Lawyer Abdul Rauf, who represented Issahaku Yakubu, argued that regardless of his client being in possession of a locally manufactured gun, the weapon is known to be used in festivities which is culturally allowed and they cannot be charged for it. He therefore accused the prosecutors for deliberately trying to delay the case to charge his client.

Sylvester Isang, Counsel for both Anas Issahaku and Abdullah, pleaded with the court to grant his clients bail, arguing that they would not run-away with a charge of possession of a single barrel gun.
