The seven persons arrested in connection with the murder of Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama were yesterday remanded into police custody by the Cape Coast District Court.
They are William Baah (an assembly member and teacher), aka Misery, 36; Yaw Annoh, 32, a mason; Bismark Donkor, 30, a farmer, and Kofi Badu, 29, a farmer.
The rest are Kofi Nyame, 29, a farmer; Philip Badu, 30, a prison assistant, and Anthony Amoah, alias Abortion, 23, an Okada operator, all residents of Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region.
The seven, who were in handcuffs and under heavy police escort, arrived at the court, presided over by Ms Rita Edusa, at 9 a.m.
They were charged provisionally with murder. Their pleas were not taken because the District Court is a committal court and not the trial court for murder.
