There was a drama at Asokwa district court in Kumasi on Thursday March 14, 2019 when the family of Wasiu who was shot dead at NDC Ashanti Regional Office attacked the private legal practitioner defending members of NDC vigilante group, the Hawks.
It would be recalled the Asokwa District Court on March 4, 2019 remanded the three members of ‘The Hawks’ who surrendered themselves to the police following the shooting incident at NDC regional office that left one dead and another badly injured.
The suspects were expected to make their appearance on Thursday March 14, 2019 as directed by the court during the last sitting.
Dauda Ibrahim alias Wayo, 40; Agyin Samuel alias Rock, 32 and Abdul Ganiyu alias Petit 37, were provisionally charged with conspiracy to commit and murder.
But during Thursday’s sitting, the bereaved family stormed the court premises in their numbers with friends and were seen causing confusion disrupting proceedings.
Lawyer Evans Amankwah who was the target of the attacks had his car tyre destroyed by the bereaved family and their friends who were charged and ready to visit violence on anyone who stood on their way.
Speaking to MyNewsGh.com he revealed that he was kept hostage by the bereaved family and friends after the court proceedings which had adjourned the case to a later date.
