Kennedy Agyapong bailed

The embattled Assin North Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong, has been granted bail for the second time in a day.

The lawmaker has been charged with treason felony, attempt to commit genocide and terrorism.

Hon. Agyapong, whose statement on an Accra-based radio station, Oman FM, last week was found to be inciting and inflammatory was earlier in the day granted bail because the security agencies kept him in custody over the stipulated 48-hour period.

State prosecution amended the charge from treason to treason felony, attempt to commit genocide and terrorism moments after the first bail was secured. However, an Accra High Court heard the plea of defense counsel and granted the MP bail in the sum of GhC200, 000.

The judge ordered for his release on health grounds. The lawmaker is reported to have high blood pressure following his detention.

Lawyers of Hon. Agyapong told Citi News they are frantically working around the clock to get their client released from BNI grip today after having spent three days in cells.
