The Kumasi High Court has again denied a bail application filed by lawyers of a senior lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Dr. Wilberforce Aggrey, who has been accused of being involved in the disappearance of his wife.
Rhodaline Amoah-Darko, a staff of the Lands Commission in Kumasi, has gone missing since September 2021. After moving the case from the Asokwa District court to the Kumasi High Court, where he was remanded after the first hearing, Dr. Wilberforce Aggrey was refused bail. During the Court hearing, Counsel for the accused person prayed the Court to grant his client bail because he has been on remand for too long.
The Judge, however, denied the bail application, stressing that not all witness statements have been filed. Case management is expected to begin on the 22nd of this month.
Two other accused persons; Yaw Boateng and Justice Appiah, who the court issued a bench warrant for their arrest during the previous court hearing, are also expected to appear before the court on the next adjourned date.
