KNUST lecturer accused of kidnapping wife granted GH₵300K bail

The Kumasi High Court has granted bail to a senior lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Dr Wilberforce Aggrey, who is standing trial over the disappearance of his wife, Rhodaline Amoah-Darko, a staff of the Lands Commission in Kumasi.

He has been granted bail of GH¢300,000 with one surety to be justified.

Citi News reports Dr Aggrey is yet to meet the bail conditions.

The case has been adjourned to 17th October 2022.

Rhodaline Amoah-Darko has been missing since 30th August 2021, as her husband and two others have been standing trial over the matter.

The two others include; Yaw Boateng and Justice Appiah who Rhodaline’s phone was found in their possession.

So far, three teaching assistants of the KNUST lecturer have mounted the witness box and testified.

Although Dr Aggrey in his statement to the police said his wife did not return home on 30th August 2021, and that he slept in the house with his kids and the teaching assistants, the teaching assistants however contradicted his claims.

The teaching assistants told the court that they slept with their lecturer’s kids at their hostel and returned to the house the next day when Rhodaline was not around.

The court had previously denied him bail, but after the lawyers finished the cross-examination for the third witness, it has now granted bail to him.
