“Mass rape” prosecutor absent from court, trial adjourned

The trial of the supposed eyewitness to the mass bus rape story, Amina Mohammed, has been adjourned to November 22, due to the failure of the prosecution to turn up at the Circuit court in Accra, Tuesday.

Amina Mohammed who has created a lot of controversy with her mass rape story was granted bail on Friday, November 5 to a tune of GH 5,000 with one surety after she was charged for publishing false information intended to cause fear and alarm under Section 208 of the Criminal Code.

Her case was scheduled for hearing on Tuesday, November 9, but Justice Paul Peter Derry had to adjourn the case due to the prosecution’s inability to turn up.

Amina has been in the center of controversy after she narrated how a Tamale bound bus was allegedly attacked by armed robbers forcing male passengers to have sex with their female counterparts after robbing them of virtually everything.

Amina was arrested on Saturday, October 30, together with the producer of Adom FM’s mid-morning show on which the story was broken. She was subsequently charged on Tuesday, November 2. The producer, popularly known as Papa Bills was later released after several hours of interrogation. Amina was in court with her lead counsel Professor Ken Attafuah and Mr. Andy Appiah-Kubi.
