Jones Kyei Nyarko was on yesterday granted a GhȻ500,000 bail with two sureties an Accra Circuit Court presided over by Mrs Patricia Quansah. He is being charged with threat of death by prosecutors.
According to the Daily Guide, he is a graduate of KNUST who is currently serving his National Service at the Ejisu M/A Experimental School in the Ashanti region.
The prosecutor, ASP Cynthia Anderson alleged that Jones threatened the new U.S Ambassador to Ghana, Robert Jackson on the American Embassy in Ghana’s official page.
On January 15, 2016 the American Embassy in Ghana posted news including a video on the appointment of the complainant and his arrival in the country on its official Facebook page and a friend of the suspect liked it, adding that on January 19, 2016 the suspect clicked on his page and saw it.
She continued that the suspect then threatened the Ambassador with the following words: Who cares! All whites are bad. I would shoot him if I should see him
The embassy reported the comments to the Police, whose investigation landed them in Ejisu. Upon arrest, however, Police reported that they did not find anything incriminating in the suspect’s room.
Jones pleaded not guilty and the case has since been adjourned to February 19, 2016.
