The family of Mr. Gregory Afoko, one of the suspects standing trial for the murder of the former Upper East Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are suspecting a ploy to poison him in the custody of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI).

According to family sources, blood samples of the suspect were taken on Thursday without his consent in custody only for operatives to return and claim he was suffering from an infection and required some treatment.

They indicate that despite violating his fundamental human rights, they are still at a loss as to why the security agency which has refused to cooperate with the order of the court to grant him bail will resort to this kind of game.

“He has been held without visitation from either family or lawyers for over two months,” the source claimed.

“The family is extremely worried and believes that the attempt to treat Gregory for an alleged infection they claim to have detected from the blood sample they took is a pretext to poison him.

“What is the motive for treating him for this alleged infection when all they have to do is obey the court order, release him to his family who can get the best healthcare available for him, if he is indeed sick.

It would be recalled that the Appeals Court on April 15, 2019 threw out a suit filed by the Attorney General’s Department for a stay of execution in respect of bail granted the suspect by an Accra High Court.

It was the second time the Attorney General made an attempt stop the bail granted the suspect but lost after the first one was on Friday March 22, 2019 thrown out by the High Court presided over by Mr. Justice George Buadi.

The trial judge had ruled that the request of the A-G for the suspect to remain in detention was an abuse of human rights as enshrined in the constitution and ruled by the Supreme Court but till date, he is yet to be freed though the family reveal they have met all the bail conditions.
