The Ashaiman Circuit Court has remanded into Police custody the six suspects arrested in connection with the murder of a 21-year-old soldier, Imoro Sheriff.

This was when they appeared before the court presided over by Mr Simon Gaga on Monday.

Two of the suspects were charged with robbery, while the others were charged with dishonesty and stealing but they all pleaded not guilty.

Adom News‘ Isabela Gidiglo, who was in court, reported a lawyer for four of the accused, Abudu Fatawo Alhassan, pleaded with the court to grant his clients bail.

However, the prosecution, Supt Sylvester Asare, prayed the plea of the accused is not taken as investigations are ongoing and bail may make the process difficult.

Mr Alhassan revealed his clients were charged with dishonestly receiving because the prosecution said some of the phones believed to be for the late Sheriff Imoro were sold to them.

He, therefore, pleaded that nobody should take the accused as murderers as there had been no iota of evidence brought to the court.

Meanwhile, the case has been adjourned to March 27, 2023.
