AUDIO: AG drops case against Delta Force 8


The Attorney General (AG) has dropped the case against the eight members of the vigilante group, Delta Force, who were said to have aided the escape of 13 of their members.

The eight were accused of aiding the escape from lawful custody of some 13 Delta Force members who were standing trial at the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) Circuit Court.

When the case was called Wednesday morning, the prosecution told the court that the Attorney General has advised the police to drop the charges against the eight accused persons.

This was because, the AG after examining the docket concluded that there was no evidence to prosecute the case.

According to the prosecutor, ACP Okyere Darko, the police did not have enough evidence to support the charges leveled against the accused persons.

Lawyers for accused say they have been vindicated since they earlier argued that their clients were innocent. Matthew Appiah is one of the lawyers.

Consequently the court presided over by by Patricia Amponsah struck out the case

One of the members of the delta force has been speaking to the media.
