DSP Gifty Mawuenyega Tehoda

The lawyers for the police officer at the center of the cocaine-turned-baking soda saga have said they suspect the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) intends to continue detaining their client despite a bail granted her on Tuesday.

DSP Mawuenyega Tehoda is still in the BNI grips, 24 hours after an Accra Human Rights Court granted her bail to the sum of Ghc100, 000.

Earlier on Wednesday, the two sureties had visited the BNI head office to facilitate the bail process as directed by the court, but they have since been turned away.

Ephraim Vordoago, one of the lawyers of the interdicted female officer told Citi News that the BNI operatives are heckling the court bailiffs who went there this afternoon to serve them with the court order.

He said: “The BNI officers are claiming that the orders of the court were not served on them, meanwhile the court bailiffs who went there to serve the orders testified that the orders were duly served on their officers, they received and signed. ”

“What we did was to contact the chief bailiff so that they prepare the proof of service and comeback and show it to them that their officers received this process as of yesterday and that there is evidence that they’ve been served. ”

Lawyer Vordoago added: “Now the latest is that the court bailiffs have gone back there and they are just going to heckle them here and there when they were trying to proof to them that they were served with the necessary orders. ”
