14-day remand for Farouk Adams in hit-and-run accident case

Embattled Aduana FC defender Farouk Adams has been remanded in police custody for 14 days.

A Berekum Circuit Court presided over by His Lordship Osei Kofi Amoako, on Thursday, March 4, passed the order in the case relating to the 31-year-old’s involvement in a hit-and-run car accident in which a Police Officer – young Constable Amos Mattey of the Wamfie Police Station – met his untimely death.

Adams, last Monday evening, allegedly hit the officer who was on a motorbike with a red Toyota Camry with registration number GW 5882-17 on the Asuotiano–Asuhyiae road in the Dormaa East District of the Bono Region.

The player allegedly left the officer to his fate after the accident which led to the loss of his life.

Adams was apprehended by Wamfie Police after initial investigations into the accident on Tuesday.

After moving his case from Wamfie to Sunyani then Fiapree, the centre-back finally appeared before the court in Berekum.

He has been charged on two counts – careless and inconsiderate driving and negligently causing harm.

Adams was represented by lawyer Baffour Akoto who pleaded for the player to be released on bail so he could receive medical care having suffered some injuries from the accident. But prosecutors insisted he was a flight risk.

His Lordship Osei Kofi Amoako ruled that Adams be kept in police custody instead of the basic for 14 days to allow investigations to continue.

Adams will hence reappear before the Berekum Circuit Court on Thursday, March 18.
