Aduana Stars defender Farouk Adams has been arrested in Dormaa Ahenkro after he hit a police officer with a car.
Farouk Adams was in court for the first time on Thursday after being charged on two counts, careless and inconsiderate driving and negligently causing harm.
His Lordship Osei Kofi Amoako, who presided over the case, ruled that the player be kept in police custody for a fortnight so the investigation can continue.
Farouk Adams will therefore return to court on March 18 after his lawyers failed to convince the court to grant him bail to seek medical treatment.
Lawyer Baffour Akoto, who represented Adams in court revealed that he pleaded to the court for Adams to be released on bail, however, the prosecutors insisted that the footballer is a flight risk.
Farouk was arrested on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 for allegedly knocking a police officer down and leaving him to die.
The Aduana Stars’ central defender Adams was said to be driving a Red Toyota Camry with registration number GW 5882-17 from Sunyani to Dormaa-Ahenkro when he allegedly knocked down the officer who was on a motorbike and dragged him into a bush.
the police accused Adams of removing the uniform of the police officer, leaving him with his inner wear on the roadside in an attempt to disguise his identity as a policeman.
He is said to have later parked the car at a nearby fuel station where, he informed the car owner about the accident and proceeded to the Wamfie Polyclinic for medical attention, because he had sustained some injuries.
He reportedly later went back to the accident scene with the car owner but again found nothing.
He then went to Dormaa-Ahenkro in a different vehicle while a mechanic moved the accident vehicle to Sunyani on the orders of the actual owner.
According to the police, Adams later told the police that it was his friend who later told him the incident had caused the death of one person before he reported to the police at Wamfie for his arrest.
