The presiding judge on the murdered police woman’s case, Amadu Seidu has lamented about the manner in which the Attorney General (AG) is handling the case.

Frustrated about the issue, he asked that if the police do not have enough evidence to the case, they should communicate to the court.

The unhappy judge stated that in the unlikely event that the Attorney General fails to produce its advice in the case on the next adjourned date, he would be forced to transfer the case to the Supervisory High Court for bail.

“If investigations are completed, the AG does not need more than two weeks to work on the docket,” the judge said.

Sylvester Isang, Counsel for both Anas Issahaku and Zulika Abdallah, argued that if the police do not have enough evidence to prosecute his clients, the suspects should be granted bail.

The judge adjourned the case to October 3, 2019.

The six suspects namely Anas Issahaku, Zulika Abduallah, IssahakuYakubu alias Kanbon-Naa, Mahama Nashiru, Samuel Atutiga and Hanan Alhassan alias Gurundoo are standing trial in connection with the gruesome killing of Sergeant Agatha Nana Nabin at a checkpoint on the Kumbungu-Tamale road.

They have been charged with conspiracy, murder, possession of firearm without lawful authority and possession of military accoutrement.

Some relatives and friends of the suspects besieged the court to support them were seen crying on the court premises.

Military and police officers took over the entire court premises as people trooped in to witness the proceedings.
