Billows of smoke and wild fire have engulfed parts of the Kumasi High court, Wednesday. The chambers of two High court judges and one circuit judge were particularly hit by the fire that broke out at about 11am.
According to Luv FM’s Erastus Asare Donkor, court officials have been evacuated from the building while fire service personnel are battling the flames.
It is not known what caused the fire. Many cases will be affected as all documents and computers in the chambers have been destroyed by the fire, Erastus said. Some lawyers he spoke to expressed worry about the fate of their clients as evidence crucial to their cases were all in the chambers of the judges.
