Chief Executive of Brompton Logistics Limited, and four other companies, James Yankah, is standing trial in an Accra Circuit Court over charges of threat of harm and unlawful entry.
The court has however committed him to bail of GHC5000, with two sureties-one to be justified-after he pleaded not guilty to the charges when he appeared before the court on December 23, 2015.
His appearance before the court did not come easy. It took the issuance of a warrant of arrest for after months of alleged hide-and-seek with the police before he was finally arrested in a police raid on his house, reliable sources say.
The case would be heard on January 11, 2016, where James Yankah would have to tell the court why he should not be committed to jail for unlawfully entering into another man’s territory.
Details of the story are sketchy but a video in the possession of reporters shows dapper James Yankah in a plush car driving into an area that looked like an uncompleted building.
James was then heard screaming and yelling words which were in cohesive. It was these threats and unlawful entry that has landed him in the grip of the law.
