Prosecutors yesterday told the Accra Circuit Court trying the five people arrested for rioting over the arrest of the Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong, that they are not ready to start the case.
When the case was called, DSP Aidan Derry informed the court that they were not ready and prayed the court, presided over by Ms. Audrey Korcuvie-Tay, to grant them adjournment.
The court obliged the prosecution and adjourned the case to May 30.
The five, said to be activists of the New Patriotic Party, were arraigned before the court on April 17, after their arrest and were granted bail in the sum of GH¢250,000 with two sureties each.
Charged with rioting, Kwame Oduro, a trader, Samuel Kwaku Gyedu, a caterer, Samuel Nsiah Kwame, a miner, Isaac Kofi Dankwah, a mechanic, and Kwame Affram, an auto-mechanic, are also to report to the police every Monday.
They have all denied the charges.
Police prosecutors said the five rioted on Monday, in front of the national police headquarters through to the Arko Adjei Interchange where they burned lorry tyres and threw stones, obstructing traffic and causing damage without regard to the law.
