The case was adjourned to Monday, February 18.

The Attorney-General in January this filed a nolle prosequi to discontinue the trial of Gregory Afoko, the man accused of killing Alhaji Adams Mahama.

The nolle prosequi followed the arrest of Asabke Alangdi, the other accused person in the trial, in Ivory Coast last Friday
Alangdi had been at large since the death of Alhaji Mahama on May 2015 at Bolgatanga.

The Minister of Information, Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, announced the arrest of Alangdi at a press briefing in Accra on Monday, January 28, 2019.
