Black Stars captain's brother granted bail
Baffour Gyan and manager of Asamoah Gyan’s businesses Samuel Anim Addo have been granted bail to the tune of GHc 30,000 each by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly Circuit Court on Monday afternoon with the surety of returning on Friday over an assault case levelled against them.
The pair, in the company of a group of young men, are alleged to have assaulted Daniel Kenu in response to a sensitive question the worker of Graphic Communications Group asked Baffour’s younger brother Asamoah, last Friday at Milklin Hotel in Kumasi.
Kenu angered Asamoah Gyan at a press conference organised by the Ghana Football Association last week by asking him to confirm or deny rumours that he has used his missing friend and fellow musician Castro, for spiritual rituals.
The court granted them bail against the wishes of the prosecutor who was of the opinion that until the other members of the group are found, the two should remain in police custody. This was confirmed by counsel for the accused, Augustus Anane Kweiba, to Kessben FM.
”We managed to convince the judge to grant them bail after pleading ‘not guilty’ to the charges leveled against them though the prosecutor thought otherwise. They wanted the see the other members of the group but what I can tell you is that, the two have been granted bail and the case has been adjourned till Friday when we reappear,” he said.
