Criminal High Court presided over by Justice Charles Ekow Baiden will deliver its ruling on the latest bail application of the embattled Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Benjamin Agordzo on Tuesday, January 21 2020.

ACP Benjamin Agordzo is one of ten (10) persons charged for an attempted coup aimed at overthrowing the Akufo-Addo administration.

Lawyer for the embattled senior Police officer, Martin Kpebu argued in Court today the 16th of January 2020, that his client was arrested on the 4th of November 2019, and has since been in Police custody till date. He further noted that Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Benjamin Agordzo is a very senior police officer, he has a wife and children, and he is not a flight risk whatsoever.

Again he indicated that the Police says they have finished their investigations and that means they have no need to have him in custody to assist with same. Quoting from the Judgement in the case of the Martin Kpebu versus Attorney General (No 2), lawyer Martin Kpebu said the Supreme Court held that the personal liberties of every person is priceless and that includes ACP Benjamin Agordzo.

The Attorney General’s department represented by Senior State Attorney Hilda Craig, indicated that the State is opposed to the Application for bail for Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP). She argued that the offence of the Senior Police officer are serious and he should not be granted bail. She indicated that should he be granted bail, he likely to interfere with possible witnesses of the State who are his Juniors in the Police Service. The security agencies like the Police Service according to the State Prosecutor is a rank bases institution and therefore Mr. Agordzo being an Assistant Commissioner of Police is like to order all lower rank officers to him who are involved in the investigations to desist from same.

Justice Charles Ekow Baiden after the submissions of the parties indicated that even though his ruling is ready, he would like to fine-tune it for delivery. He, therefore, ordered that the applicants return to his Court on the 21st of January 2020 for same.
