Thirty-five (35) year old Adamu Asumah will this morning be arraigned before a Tamale District Magistrate Court for assault by imprisonment and kidnapping.
The suspect was arrested at the weekend for colluding with others currently on the run to kidnap one Ismael Hussein 24 a member of Tiger Eye PI in Tamale.
Hussein is accused of being the one who shot the video in the chambers and home of Mr Justice Ansu Gyeabour, a retired High Court judge who at the time was captured receiving money and tubers of yam as bribe.
The family of an unnamed young man who won an appeal against a 10-year jail term slapped on him by a Tamale High Court was acquitted after relations of the convict and Hussein allegedly bribed him.
According to sources, after the video on the alleged bribery scandal came out, Hussein went underground until he was spotted around the Tamale Polytechnic area where he was identified by Adamu as the one who had shot the video when the family of the young man went to see the judge in his chambers.
This resulted in his being kidnapped until police rescued him from the location he had been taken to.
Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) ASP Ebenezer Tetteh revealed that police have intensified search for his accomplices believed to have fled the town.
“Police are seriously working behind the scenes to have the rest of them arrested”
According to him, the incident is believed to have been instigated by one of the implicated High Court judges in the infamous bribery scandal exposed by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his team.
The journalists who is believed to be trailed by his kidnappers was arrested and taken hostage by his assailants at his family home around water works a suburb of the Tamale Metropolis.
His phones were seized from him by the captives who locked him up in a shop belonging to one of the 22 implicated judges.
