Eight members of pro-government vigilante group Delta Force who aided in the escape of 13 of their members have been granted bail by a Kumasi High Court.
The bail conditions are GHc 10,000 each with two sureties, and they are also to report to the police CID on Tuesday, April 18, before 3:00 pm.
The eight suspects have been charged with causing disturbance in court, resisting arrest and rescuing persons in lawful custody.
They had been denied bail by a Kumasi Circuit court on Monday, April 10, when they were remanded in police custody.
This was in spite of arguments by their lawyer, Gary Nimako, that their offence was a bailable one.
He argued that the case centred more on national security and hence his clients should be bailed but the judge refused.
The lawyers subsequently took their plea for a bail to the High Court after the denial.
It will be recalled that the eight members of Delta Force, a vigilante group associated with the governing New Patriotic Party, besieged the Kumasi Circuit Court last week and freed its members who were facing charges for attacking the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator.
