Two more people have been charged in the bullion van case.

In connection with the recent bullion truck robberies in Accra, two additional people have been charged. 

The two, General Constable Nelson Tetteh and Badu Zakari, aka Rasta, a mechanic, were arraigned at Evelyn Asamoah's court last Tuesday. 

Four police recruits had already been charged in connection with the crime: Constable Yaro Afisu Ibrahim, Constable Albert Ofosu alias Cypher, Constable Richard Boadu aka Osor, and Constable Rabiu Jambedu. 

The substantive charge against the four was changed to include the two accused persons when the case was called. 


Constables Yaro Afisu Ibrahim and Albert Ofosu, alias Cypher, have pleaded not guilty to attempted robbery charges. 

G/Constable Richard Boadu, nicknamed Osor, G/Constable Rabiu Jambedu, G/Constable Nelson Tetteh, and Badu Zakari pled not guilty to the allegation of abetment. 


They've been remanded in custody and are due back in court on June 2nd. 

The prosecution, led by Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Sylvester Asare, has been given till May 30 to file its disclosures and witness testimony. 

Justin Terriwajjah, David Bondorin, Jango Huhu, Devine Dotse Tettey, and Andrews Kudzo Vortia, lawyers for the accused, took turns praying for bail for their clients. 

The judge, however, placed them in police custody after the prosecution vigorously rejected their plea.
