Two persons standing trial over KNUST clashes granted bail

Two persons standing trial over KNUST clashes granted bail

A Kumasi High Court has granted bail to two people facing charges in connection with disturbances at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

After the Asokore Mampong District Court denied bail to their clients after two appearances, lawyers for the accused went to the High Court.

Following clashes between residents of rival halls at KNUST, police arrested and arraigned the accused, an alumnus and a student.

When they appeared in Asokore Mampong Court for the first and second time, they were denied bail.
The prosecution argued that the police needed more time to investigate the case and asked the court to remand the accused.

The High Court, however, granted them bail in the amount of 80,000 Ghana cedis each with two sureties.
They must also report to the investigator once a week until otherwise instructed.
