ARREST WARRANT: We are in court to challenge the arrest warrant of Naa Alhaji Seidu Abagre—Nayiri lead counsel

Nayiri counsels

A member of the lead counsel for the Mamprugu Traditional Council Lawyer Majeed Amandi has said, they are in court to challenge the arrest warrant issued against the newly enskinned Chief Naa Alhaji Seidu Abagre.

The arrest warrant of the newly enskinned Bawku chief Naa Alhaji Seidu Abagre came shortly after the arrest of Nayiri the Mamprugu Overlord, Naa Bohagu Mahami Abdulai Sheriga was rescinded by the Bolgatanga High Court.

However, following this development, about 5 legal counsels of Nayiri were present at the Bolgatanga High Court 2 to challenge the arrest warrant issued against the newly enskinned Chief.
Meanwhile, updating the press outside the court premises on Wednesday, March 23, 2023, one of the lead Counsels of Nayiri,
Lawyer Majeed Amandi explained that they are in court to find out why the warrant against the Newly enskinned Chief was issued in the first place.

“We are the lead counsel and our understanding is that after the enskinment the Nayiri enskinned the Bawku Naba a warrant was issued and to tell you the truth, we haven’t even sighted the warrant”.

“We directed a colleague lawyer in Bolgatanga to conduct a search at the registrar of Bolgatanga High Court and the search reveals that there are ex-parte processes that led to the issuance of a warrant for the arrest of Nayiri and the newly enskinned chief”.

“And later on, that arrest was rescinded and another one issued for the newly enskinned chief and we are saying, the newly enskinned chief did not enskin himself in the first place, is Nayiri who enskinned him, So, if anybody should answer, is not this ordinary man”. He stressed

Lawyer Amandi further indicated that as far as they are concerned, is prudent they come before the court and find out why the warrant was issued. “From our side, we think the warrant is a nullity and we have applied to challenge the warrant”.

The counsels were not pleased with the absence of the High Court Judge Justice Alexander Graham and representatives from the Attorney General’s Office in court.

However, they were asked to return on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, for proceedings.
