An Accra Circuit court has refused bail to the eight suspects who were arrested in connection with the robbery of the late MP for Mfantseman, Ekow Quansah. The presiding judge Evelyn Asamoah made the decision after the prosecution told the court that results of the forensic examination of evidence gathered at the crime scene was not ready. The accused persons, Alhassan Abubakar, Naziru Fudailu Nash, popularly called SP, Alhassan Mahama Yahaya, Amadu Yakubu, Haruna Osumanu, Adam Alhassan, Fuseini Osman and Fred Tetteh have pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to robbery and have since been remanded.

At the previous hearing, the Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Emmanuel Halligah told the court that the bullets, shells and gun used by the perpetrators had been sent to the forensic laboratory for examination, and asked the court for more time to conclude the examination. At the hearing yesterday, ASP Fuseini Yakubu, told the court that the report from the forensic laboratory of the cybercrime unit was not ready, and therefore urged the court to remand the accused persons and adjourn the case.

In his application for bail, one of the defense counsels, George Asamaney, argued that his clients were not flight risk and that they have fixed places of abode. He said when admitted to bail, his clients will not interfere with police investigations and will attend court proceedings till the final determination of the matter.
