Bulldog case adjourned to June 30; Police ask for more time

The Accra Central and LA Magistrate Court (5) has adjourned to June 30 the case involving Nana Asiama Hanson (Bulldog), who has been charged for allegedly murdering Fennec Okyere, a music producer.

The court adjourned the case after the Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Sancher, begged the court for more time to finish his investigations into the matter.

Bulldog, who has been charged for allegedly murdering Fennec Okyere, was granted bail by the Human Rights Court on Tuesday, May 27.

He was picked up by the police on May 15 in Kokomlemle, a suburb of Accra, as a prime suspect in the murder of Fennec Okyere who was killed at his residence on March 13 by unknown assailants. The deceased was the manager of hiplife artiste, Kwaw Kesse.

Bulldog made his first appearance at the Magistrate Court on Monday May 19, and was remanded into police custody despite appeals by the defence counsel for the suspect to be granted bail.

Not satisfied with the decision by the Magistrate Court to hold their client, lawyers for Bulldog took the matter to the Human Rights Court and requested for bail. The High Court upheld the request.

The Human Rights Court granted the request by the defence counsel because the facts as presented by the police and upon which they were holding Bulldog were "speculative" and did not link him to the charges that had been preferred against him.

On that basis, the court ruled that, Bulldog deserved his freedom and should not even have been held for a day.
