The court presided over by Mr Korkor Achaw Owusu, did not take the pleas of Ousman Issah and Alhassan Issah alias Million.

They would come back to court on November 24, 2015 for trial to continue.

Meanwhile, a third suspect Hajia Gariba, the Constituency’s women’s organizer who was in the dock with the two, has been kept in police custody to enable her access medical attention due to an asthmatic condition.

Mr. Isaac Kwaku Brenya, the Constituency Chairman arrested together with other suspects, is also still in police custody assisting in investigations.

The police has also launched a man-hunt for fugitive Mahamadu alias Duna, suspected to have stabbed the deceased to death during a scuffle.

Prosecuting, Superintendent Emmanuel Akunnor, told the court that on November 6, 2015 at about 1200hours the accused persons alleged to be complicit in the act that led to murder of the deceased, were arrested by the police at Asawase Constituency office where the incident happened.

They are alleged to have been part of an irate youth belonging to a rival party faction fighting for the reinstatement of Mr Paul Afoko, the party’s suspended national Chairman.

Prosecution told the court that a confusion over access to a locked party office for a meeting by one of the rival factions led to a fierce confrontation between the rival faction on that fateful day, which led to the cold blood murder of Saddick.

The accused persons were identified and arrested but have denied the offence in their police caution statement.
