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

Dr. Wilberforce Aggrey, a prominent lecturer at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), has been granted bail by the Kumasi High Court while he awaits prosecution for the disappearance of his wife, Rhodaline Amoah-Darko, a member of the Kumasi Lands Commission staff.

He has been given a $300,000 bail bond with one surety to justify it.

Citi News notes. Dr. Aggrey has not yet adhered to the bail requirements.

The lawsuit has been continued until October 17, 2022.

Since August 30, 2021, Rhodaline Amoah-Darko has been missing while her husband and two other people are on trial for the incident.

Yaw Boateng and Justice Appiah are the other two people, and it was discovered that they were in possession of Rhodaline’s phone.

Three of the professor at KNUST’s teaching assistants have already climbed the witness stand and given testimony thus far.

While Dr. Aggrey claimed in his statement to the police that his wife had not returned home as of August 30, 2021, and that he had slept in the house with his children and teaching helpers, such statements were refuted by the teaching assistants.

The teaching assistants said in court that they spent the night with the children of their lecturer at their hostel and went back to the house the following morning when Rhodaline was not there.

After the attorneys finished questioning the third witness in cross-examination, the court reversed its previous decision and granted him bail.
