The criminal case involving the death of former Northern Regional Chairman of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Issah Mobilla has been adjourned following the absence of the military personnel indicted in the case. The new dates are the 28th, 29th and the 30th of April 2009. The three soldiers, whose names had been withheld for security reasons, were absent from the courts for unconfirmed reasons. Citi News Northern Regional correspondent, Abdul Karim Nantongma who was at the court premises reports that the case, which was presided over by Justice Lawrence Mensah, was conducted in a surprisingly peaceful environment.

The case when heard in the Tamale High Court in 2006 recorded scenes of violence and confusion as 23 suspects were brought forward to the disapproval of party supporters who had besieged the court premises. Police and Military patrols were required to clear up the groups. Karim Nantongma reports that the family of Issah Mobilla and the Northern Regional Chairman of the CPP, Alhaji Tijani were among the few people who sat through the court proceedings. Issah Mobilla, former Northern regional Chairman of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) was reported dead in military custody in 2004 after he was arrested by the Police and handed over to the Military at the Kamina Barracks.

A pathology report conducted by Dr. Kweku Adomako Boateng of the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi revealed that Alhaji Mobila died of a collapse of his left lung, fractured ribs, severe multiple aberrations suspected to have been the result of severe beating. Karim Nantongma reports that the Acting Director in Charge of Ppublic Prosecutions, Madam Gertrude Aikins proposed that the three suspects who were allegedly still at the Kamina Barracks be transfered to the Tamale prisons. This according to her will ensure that they will be present when the case was heard on the scheduled date. Justice Lawrence Mensah is reported to have given consent to the proposal and directed the Commander of the 6th Infantry Battalion to transfer the three suspects to the Tamale Prison
