Freeing Delta 8 ‘politically impudent’ – Kweku Baako
The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide
newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has stated that
the decision to free the eight members of the
Delta Force who were standing trial for invading
the KMA court in Kumasi is ‘politically unwise’.

The Attorney General (AG) dropped the case against
the eight members of the vigilante group, Delta
Force, who were said to have aided the escape of
13 of their members.

The eight were accused of aiding the escape from
lawful custody of some 13 Delta Force members who
were standing trial at the Kumasi Metropolitan
Assembly (KMA) Circuit Court.

When the case was called Wednesday morning, the
prosecution told the court that the Attorney
General has advised the police to drop the charges
against the eight accused persons.

This was because, the AG after examining the
docket concluded that there was no evidence to
prosecute the case.

The freeing of the eight have received mixed
reactions from members of the public.

And Kweku Baako who claimed the Attorney General,
Gloria Akufo and her two deputies did not advice
the prosecutor in the Delta 8 trial to discontinue
the case described the decision as ‘politically

“The advice may be legally sustainable (based on
the contents of the duplicate docket) but
politically impudent! A case of this nature should
been allowed to run its full course in court.
That’s my lay man’s take. My instincts tell me
something dramatic could be brewing in the pot!,”
he said.

According to the veteran journalist, the advice
for the Attorney General to discontinue the case
was offered by the Senior State Attorney in the
Ashanti Region, Marie Louise-Simmons after
studying the duplicate docket offered by the

“My preliminary checks show the AG and her two
Deputies had no idea of what happened or went into
the advice to discontinue the prosecution of the
Delta 8! Apparently, the Attorney General’s
Department (Kumasi) in a letter dated May 9, 2017
signed by the Senior State Attorney, Marie
Louise-Simmons on behalf of Chief State Attorney,
advised the Prosecution to discontinue prosecution
for lack of evidence after studying the Police
Duplicate Docket!,” he stated in a text message to
Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen Programme on Wednesday.
