Efforts by lawyers for Koampa Razak Avoliya, the Suame National Democratic Congress (NDC) youth organiser to secure bail at the Asokwa Circuit court over an alleged hate speech was shot down.

Prosecutor, ACP Kofi Blagodzie had prayed the court for more time to enable investigations concluded.

He argued that the release of Razak Avoliya might cause anarchy considering the magnitude of his ‘hate speech’ on Sunday when he granted a local media house interview during an event.

The presiding judge, Fred Obikyere was convinced, despite defense’s plea for bail application.

Lawyer Evans Amankwaa, counsel for the accused described Thursday’s ruling as disappointing “I am talking as a lawyer and NDC member, we will not be intimidated” he told William Evans-Nkum.

The Police arrested suspect Razak Avoliya following an investigation into a viral video in which he allegedly incited political violence ahead of the next general elections.

He reappears on Tuesday, February 14.
