Vociferous activist of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Asare Obeng otherwise known as A Plus, has cautioned members of the party to hasten slowly in believing everything said by the Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jnr.

“This is a letter the court wrote to the police asking them to bring Gregory Afoko for a bail bond to be executed. This was the order the police flouted with impunity and were cited for contempt. The fact that you are a young person in this country does not mean you are a fool. The fact that you are a member of the NPP does not mean you must believe everything Kweku Baako says. Kwaku Baako, at this age start fighting for Ghana and our democracy. You have fought very hard for the NPP. Congratulations!!! It’s now time to fight for Ghana too!!!” he said in a post sighted by MyNewsGh.com.

One of the lawyers representing the accused person, Nana Yaw Osei has however reacted to the claims made by Kweku Baako on Accra-based Peace Fm.

“The documents you read on PEACE FM’s Kokrokoo programme on (17/7/19) were a one-sided unlawful busy-body interaction between the police and the Lands Commission.It’s the exclusive duty of the court (the Registrar/Registry) to ensure that bail conditions imposed by a Court of Competent Jurisdiction are met by accused persons who have been granted bail, except if the court for whatever reason(s) orders the police or any other person or body to do so”, he said

According to him, the court in granting bail to Gregory Afoko did not ask the police to do its work for it and that the police in trying to conduct a search was on a frolic of its own.

“Kweku Baako, for your information, that was why during one of the hearings of the contempt application still pending in court (Commercial Court 3), the judge when she realized that the court itself had concluded its own independent search ordered the police to discontinue with the so-called search at the Lands Commission”

Explaining further he said “Kweku Baako, there are authentic correspondences at the Court registry indicating that Gregory Afoko met all the bail conditions and the registry actually wrote to the police notifying them of the Gregory having met the bail conditions”
