The troubled former Ghana international player has finally been granted bail in the amount of GHc100,000 by the Circuit Court in Accra.

His attorneys have been able to persuade the court to grant him bail on his third request on Friday, December 30, the final working day of the year 2022, despite the fact that he was remanded to appear on January 4.

He must provide three sureties in addition to the bail amount, one of whom the court said should be a public official.

The court ruled that one of the sureties should be supported by landed property while the other might be a regular Ghanaian.

The ex-striker for the Black Stars and Hearts of Oak has given the court an extra GH59, 000 on top of the GH70, 000 that was previously paid on December 23.

If he complies with the bail conditions, Prince Tagoe, also known as the Prince of Goals, will spend the New Year with his family.

The former Ghana Premier League goalkeeper, who was accused of defrauding former player George Antwi Boateng of the sum of $40,000, which is equal to GHC265,200, by using false pretenses, has entered a not-guilty plea.

He was initially accused, arraigned, and remanded by the Circuit Court presided over by His Honor Mr. Samuel Bright Acquah on Wednesday, December 21.

His third try, on December 30, was successful after his second, on December 23, had been denied.

Prince Tagoe, through his new attorneys, led by Attorney Kwesi Kwarkye, paid GH70,000 to the court on Friday, December 23, two days after his initial appearance.

When the case was called, Prince Tagoe wasn’t in the courtroom.

However, Chief Inspector Agartha Abena Asantewaa, who represented the prosecution, was present, as were his attorneys.
