The trial of two persons accused of killing the former Ashanti Regional Chairman of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA), Samuel Ennin, resumed at the Kumasi High Court yesterday.

The accused persons, Kwame Ayew and Sherif Kabore, have been charged with murder, an offence which carries the death sentence if convicted.

Already, the two persons are serving various long prison terms over other offences.

The High Court remanded them into prison custody to reappear on March 13, 2012 for hearing.

It was the third time the two accused persons had gone before the criminal assizes in connection with Ennin's murder.

According to the prosecution, Ennin was sitting over drinks with some colleagues at Liberal Spot, a drinking joint in Kumasi, in the night of February 9, 2007 when armed men stormed the place and shot him in the midsection and in the neck.

The gunmen, who were using a VW Jetta saloon car, with registration number AS 5598 W, arrived at the spot firing indiscriminately.

They took away mobile phones from their victims. In April 2007, Kabore and Ayew were arrested after thorough investigations into the matter.
