Joy News’ Kwakye Afreh Nuamah, who was in court, reported that lawyer for KKD, Anthony Forson told the presiding Judge Adwoa Akyaamaa Ofosu that he will need advice from ACP Atimbila, State Prosecutor regarding how proceedings should go on because a bail application is pending before a Human Rights Court.
ACP Atimbila said he was also waiting for advice from the Attorney General’s office and that it would be improper for him to give advice on what the court should do.
After listening to both sides, the court adjourned the case for two weeks as it awaits the High Court’s ruling on the bail application which has been fixed for January 13.

According to Afreh, family sources told him that she is very traumatized by the circulation of her name and photographs on social media. Even feeding is a problem, the sources said.
