Razak Koampa Avoliya, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Youth Organiser at the Suame constituency in Kumasi said to have initiated political violence has been granted bail by the Asokwa District Court.
He was last week remanded in police custody when he was arraigned at the Asokwa District Court presided over by Fred Obikyere on the charge of offensive conduct, conducive to breaches of peace of the state.
His accusation is that he incited political violence.
Today he has been granted bail in the sum of GHc50,000.
The accused handed himself to the police after he was declared a wanted man.
This was after he made some unsavoury statements in a video.
The Ashanti Regional executive of the NDC on Wednesday, February 8, 2023, handed him over to the police.
The prosecution led by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Kofi Blagodzie, pleaded with the court to remand the accused person to allow police more time for investigation.
The lawyer for the accused, Evans Amankwah, opposed the application and said the accused was not a flight risk and would not interfere with the police investigation.
The court, however, upheld the application by the prosecution and remanded the accused into police custody.
