It has emerged that the younger brother of former National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party(NPP) Chairman, Gregory Afoko is dead.
Gregory Afoko who was standing trial for the suspected murder of Adams Mahama passed away whilst receiving treatment at the hospital in Accra.
Gregory has been on and off the hospital for over a year now for an unknown ailment.
He was scheduled to appear in court on November 24, 2020.
Gregory Afoko until his demise was standing trial for the 2015 suspected murder of Adams Mahama who was at the time the Upper East Regional Chairman of the NPP.
Mr. Adams Mahama suffered severe bodily injuries after a substance suspected to be acid was allegedly poured on him in front of his house in Bolgatanga on May 20, 2015.
He later died from the injuries at the Bolgatanga General Hospital.
Afoko was initially the only one standing trial after Alangdi allegedly absconded from Ghana.
After more than three years of trial, the Attorney-General (A-G) filed a nolle prosequi on January 28, 2019, to discontinue the trial following the arrest of Alangdi.
Afoko challenged the nolle prosequi by filing a case at the Supreme Court, but on June 19, 2019, the apex court dismissed the case on the premise that Afoko failed to prove that the nolle prosequi was capricious, unfair and arbitrary.
