The individuals facing trial for allegedly attempting to destabilise the state have been granted a GHS10-million bail with two sureties – each to be justified, by an Accra High Court.
The accused are Dr Frederick Yao Mac-Palm, Chief Executive Officer of the Citadel Hospital; Donyo Kafui, alias Ezor, blacksmith; Bright Alan Debrah, Freight; Colonel Samuel Kojo Gameli; Corporal Seidu Abubakar; Lance Corporal (L/C), Sylvester Akankpewu; and Johannes Zipki with the Signal Unit of the Ghana Armed Forces.
The eight are to report to the Bureau of National Investigation (BNI) twice a week as well as deposit their passports with the court’s registry.
They were charged on Wednesday, 9 October 2019.
The prosecution said the accused persons are members of an NGO, Take Action Ghana, and they planned to demonstrate, destabilise and topple the government.
They were arrested after a 15-month-long surveillance by the state security agencies led to the scuttling of their alleged treasonable intentions.
