The six suspects have been remanded in police custody in connection with the murder of Private Imoro Sherrif, a 21-year-old soldier, in Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region.
Between March 9 and March 12, the six were detained in various locations.
They were charged on Monday (March 13) in the Ashaiman District Court, presided over by Simon Gaga, according to Benjamin Xornam Glover.
The prosecution claims that one of the accused defendants stabbed the soldier in the arm while two other suspects looted the soldier.
According to reports, the other four purchased a cell phone that had been stolen from the soldier who had died.
Abdul Fatawu Alhassan, the defense attorney for the four accused individuals who are claimed to have purchased the stolen phone, pleaded for the court to allow the four of them bail because they were not involved in either the heist or the alleged murders.
The prosecution rejected the bail request and said that the defendants do not have a fixed address.
The four defendants, along with the two other defendants allegedly involved in the heist, were ordered by the court to remain in police custody.
They’re scheduled to return on March 27, 2023.
Safianu Musah alias Dayorgu and Ibrahim Abdul Rakib are the accused.
On March 9, 2023, they were apprehended at their hideouts in Ashaiman.
Samuel Tetteh alias Wiper and Abubakar Sadick alias Birdman are the names of two further suspects. On March 10, 2023, they were also apprehended at their hiding places.
Yussif Mohammed and Abdul Gafaru Abdul Karim, two more suspects, were taken into custody on March 11 and March 12, 2023, respectively.
