The sitting judge on the trial of the murder of overlord of Dagbon Ya-Na Yakubu Andani has recused himself from the case.

This follows allegations of bias by the Deputy Attorney General, Mr. Ebo Barton Oduro.

Mr. Oduro told news men he has evidence of a bias comment made by the judge, Anthony Oppong at a drinking bar and will make the evidence available at an appropriate time.

He subsequently urged the Chief Justice to replace Justice Oppong because the prosecution could not be assured of fair trial.
