The embattled police officer, ACP Dr. Benjamin Agordzo has finally been released from police custody, two days after he was granted bail by a High Court in Accra.
The High Court on Tuesday granted him a self-recognizance bail to the tune of GH¢500,000 with an order that he deposits his passport at the court’s registry.
ACP Agordzo Finally Released?
He was however still held in police custody, following the ruling, despite calls by the court to the police administration to enable him sign his bail bond.
ACP Agordzo’s brother, Cephas Agordzo in a Citi News interview on Tuesday night expressed regret that the police administration was still holding his brother despite the court’s ruling.
He said the police had failed to explain the reason behind its action.
“The court set conditions that he has been given self-recognizance bail and that he should deposit his passport at the High Court registry which we did yesterday [Tuesday], and when we came back to the police custody, they called again from the court that the police should bring him back to court to come and sign his bail, but the police refused to do that from yesterday [Tuesday],” he said.
ACP Agordzo Finally Released
But when he spoke to Citi News on Wednesday afternoon, he said ACP Dr. Benjamin Agordzo has finally been released and is on his way to be reunited with the family.
