The Konongo District Court has again adjourned a case involving five juveniles standing trial in connection with the death of a first-year student of the Konongo-Odumase Senior High School.
This is to enable the office of the Attorney General to complete processes to transfer the case to the High Court.
The court presided over by Her Worship, Joyce Bamfo, granted a request by the prosecution and adjourned the case to enable the transfer to a higher court.
Head of Legal and Prosecution at the Ashanti Regional Police Command, Chief Superintendent, Kofi Blagodzi, narrated what transpired in court on Monday.
“We came to pray the court for an adjournment and after that, we shall transfer the case to the High Court. I assure all of you that the case will be heard at the High Court soon. We will appear again on the 6th of December.”
Counsel for the Prime Suspect, Richard Adu Darko, says he is satisfied with the court processes so far.
Larhan Sam’un, the deceased, was stabbed with a knife by his colleague after he attempted to resolve a scuffle between the suspect and his mates.
Preliminary investigations by the police show that the prime suspect, 17-year-old Emmanuel Frimpong, was abusing some form-one students and upon resistance by some students, he stabbed Larhan Sam’un to death.
