The case involving the suspended Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), Mr Abdul Issah Mumin has been adjourned to March 22, 2022.
This comes after the prosecutors pleaded for 3 more weeks to file their disclosure which they claimed is ready but the counsel for the defendant pleaded otherwise.
The defence counsel argued a week will be suitable for the next meeting which the Judge, Justice Michael Cudjoe Ampadu, presiding over the Takoradi Harbour Court agreed.
The Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) was arrested by the Western Regional Police Command.
According to reports, Mr Abdul Mumin Issah was arrested on Thursday, February 3, 2022, for an alleged motor traffic offence, verbal assault and offensive conduct against a police officer who was performing his lawful duty.
The MCE has been charged on three (3) counts, assault on a public officer, offensive conduct conducive to breaches of the peace and disturbing the peace in a public place.
He has also been charged for dangerous driving.
Further information states that he was driving a Nissan Patrol vehicle with registration number GE 5615 – 20 and is alleged to have driven dangerously and carelessly while approaching a police checkpoint at the Kwesimintsim Cemetery on Wednesday, February 2, 2022.
This was after one of the police officers tried to stop him which he verbally assaulted and threatened him.
