The Circuit Court in Accra presided over by Her Honour Madam Ellen Offei Ayeh has granted bail in a combined sum of GHc320,000 to the four persons who were arrested in connection to the Christ Embassy Church “Pneumatica Night” incident.
The accused persons Alex Asomani, Wilson Delali and Agyeman Kumi Nutifafa who are members of the Church were granted bail in the sum of GHc80,000 with two sureties each.
One of the sureties the court said should be a public/civil servant earning not less than GHc1400.
The fourth person, Edmond Dapaaah, who is the facility manager at the Fantasy Dome was also granted GHc80, 000 bail with two sureties, one of the sureties to be a public or civil servant.
The three members of the Christ Embassy Church pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit crime namely failing to comply with restrictions imposed contrary to Section 23 (1) of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 Act 29 and Section 6 of the Imposition of Restrictions 2020 (Act 1012) and regulation 1 of EI.135/2021.
While Edmond Depaah was slapped with the charge of Abatement.
The plea on the charge relating to failing to comply with restrictions imposed was reserved as the court directs the prosecution to amend it because it is defective.
The court admitted them to bail after their respective lawyers prayed that, they be granted bail while the prosecution led by Chief Inspector Simon Appiorsornu did not oppose.
The accused persons were Nana Banyin Arhin and Jerry Avenorgbo.
The court has since adjourned the case to May 24.
