Court to rule on ACP Agordzo’s bail next week

Accra High Court has set January 21 date to rule on whether ACP Benjamin Agordzo will be granted bail or remain in custody.

This follows some extra documents filed last week by his lawyers to push for his bail. The senior police officer, who has been in police custody after two bail applications, was denied bail in November 2019 by an Accra High Court. He has been accused of being involved in a plan to topple the government.

In court on Thursday, lawyers of ACP Agordzo, led by Martin Kpebu, filed indentures of proposed sureties and said the senior police officer is not a flight risk and is eager to see the commencement of trial to clear his name of all charges leveled against him.

Senior State Attorney, Hilda Craig, argued that ACP Agordzo could use his position to interfere with investigations if he is released on bail.

he added that witnesses from National Security and the Police Service, who will testify against him, could be compromised, once the senior police officer is released on bail.

In a swift reply, Mr Kpebu told the court denial of ACP’s personal liberty constitutes serious violations of his priceless human right, hence should be granted bail. The court, presided over by his Lordship Justice Ekow Baiden, will next week rule on the case.
