Nana Agradaa’s lawyer, Theophilus Donkor, who was charged and arraigned before court for verbally assaulting police officers who were in the process of arresting his client Nana Agradaa, has been granted bail by an Accra Circuit Court.
Mr. Donkor had pleaded not guilty to two counts of assault on a public officer and offensive conduct conducive to the breach of peace and was granted a self-recognisance bail by the court presided over by Rosemond Baah Tosu.
The two parties were asked to consider resolving their case outside the court.
Mr. Donkor is, however, to reappear on February 27, 2023.
Meanwhile, the lawyer has filed a motion challenging the authority of the police who arrested him.
He is arguing that personnel from the Cantonments Police Station who arrested him did not have the authority to do so because the alleged crime was committed around the Accra Metropolitan Assembly area, a jurisdiction outside the operations of the Cantonments Police Division.
