Court grants Hopeson Adorye bail

The Dansoman Circuit Court has granted Hopeson Adorye bail on Thursday, May 23,

He has been charged with the publication of false news.

He is to report to the police station every Monday to assist with investigations, TV3’s George Kwenning reported.

The leading member of the Movement for Change was arrested on Wednesday over his claim that he detonated dynamites in the Volta Region during the 2016 general elections.

Mr. Adorye made the claim during a radio interview in Accra, which has since gone viral.

Commenting on the arrest, former Member of Parliament for Adenta and now a member of the Movement for Change, Yaw Buaben Asamoa said in an interview on Joy FM that the arrest is politically motivated.

He said “Hopeson Adorye is not about to run away from Ghana or from his home because the police intends to charge him with the publication of false information.

“So, to go to the extent of keeping him all day in the police station and bringing him over to the Ministries to detain him, you point fingers backward at yourself that there is something political at play and it’s not fair,” he said.

“This is obviously politically motivated, there is no doubt about that,” he emphasized.

Hopeson Adorye earlier engaged in a verbal confrontation with a Police officer when he was being whisked out of the police headquarters.

He attempted to speak to his lawyer Ken Kuranchie while he was being moved into a Police car but the officer interjected and asked him to move quickly into the car.

It was during that point that he shouted at the Police officer that “I am talking to my lawyer, please, I am talking to my lawyer and then you are preventing me. What is the meaning of that? Are you the only Police officer?”
