Accra, Sept.12, GNA – An Accra Circuit Court
on Wednesday granted a bail in the sum of GH¢20,000.00 with a surety to Seth
Nana Amowi, who allegedly crossed the Presidential convoy in an attempt to kill

The Court ordered that the surety should be
either his father or brother as prayed the Prosecution.

Amowi was charged for crossing the
Presidential convoy in an attempt to kill himself, obstruction and offensive

He has since pleaded not guilty to all the
charges and will make his next appearance on September 26.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) George
Amegah told the Court presided over by Mr Emmanuel Essandoh that the
Prosecution Witnesses are police personnel stationed at the Jubilee House while
Amowi was unemployed, living at Nungua, a suburb of Accra.

On August 7, this year, at about 0930hours, in
an attempt to commit the offence, he hid himself close to the Jubilee House,
awaiting the President.

DSP Amegah said when he saw the convoy; he
suddenly emerged from his hide-out and crossed the convoy, causing it to stop

The Prosecution said Amowi started hitting the
President’s car and laid on the bonnet and it took the security a great effort
to get him off the way.

In his caution statement, he told the police
he tried committing suicide as he had failed severally to put his grievances
before Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President.

Briefing the Court, Amowi said he wanted to
present a petition to the President on the hardships Ghanaians were going

His letter, he said, contained solutions to
the Country’s problems such as taxing churches and private cars to raise money
to resolve the problems.

Amowi told the judge that several efforts to
present the letter had failed including; going to the President’s house,
Parliament, Peace FM and finally to the Jubilee House.
