Four more persons remanded over Tema-Mpakadan train accident

Four individuals have been brought before the High Court in Accra regarding their involvement in last week’s train accident at Kpong in the Eastern Region.

The four individuals—Kokuo Koudjo, Patrick Kwaku Sosu, Alaza Prosper, and Fiadugbe Emmanuel—have been arraigned for allegedly aiding convicted Abel Dzidotor in causing unlawful damage to the train.

Abel Dzidotor, a 41-year-old truck driver, was recently sentenced to six months in jail for leaving his vehicle unattended on a section of the tracks identified as “Km 76 + 100,” which resulted in the accident.

The four individuals have been charged with abetment of unlawful damage at the court presided over by Justice Lydia Osei Marfo.

However, their pleas were not taken during their appearance before the court yesterday (April 22).

This is because the prosecutor, Assistant State Attorney Christabel Selma Anafure, requested more time to finalize investigations.

The case has been adjourned to May 8 of this year.

Prosecution’s facts
The facts narrated by the prosecutor were that on April 18, 2024, between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm, the accused persons were on board a Hyundai Gold truck with registration number GS 9018-20, driven by one Dzidotor Abel (now a convict).
