Ho, Dec.23, GNA - Togbe Lablulu V, Chief of Adaklu Waya and 10 others who allegedly murdered a passenger in a taxi at the outskirts of Adaklu Waya were on Thursday granted 20 million cedis bail each with a surety when they appeared before a Ho Magistrate court presided over by Mr David Amedior.
Their pleas were not taken and would re-appear on January 13. The other accused persons alleged to have murdered a passenger on a Peugeot caravan taxi driven by Justice Kudiabor from Ho-Bankoe were Togbe Gadzegbe II, Togbe Agbo IV, Togbe Addo IV, Samuel Vehe and Samuel Amafu.
The rest were David Doku, Stephen Nanevi, John Kofi Ntumi, Sela Ameko and Kwaku Adzri.
The Volta Regional Police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police Emmanuel B. Ansong, last Tuesday briefing the press on the incident at Ho, said on the night of December 13 one Sela Ameko, a driver who had travelled from Ho to Adaklu-Waya informed the Waya community of the presence of armed robbers in a taxi on the outskirts of the town.
ACP Ansong said acting on the information some people from Waya attacked Kudiabor and his passengers while Kudiabor was replacing a burst tyre killing one of the passengers and leaving another passenger who hailed from Adaklu-Waya unharmed.
He said Kudiabor who sustained cutlass wounds was on admission at the Volta regional Hospital at Ho.
The Police Commander said the taxi was set ablaze and the deceased was found about 35 metres from the scene in a decomposed state when the police arrived at the scene on December 15.
He said the corpse would be taken to Accra for post mortem.
