On the amended charges, Justice Binta Nyako, held that the prosecution can not at every opportunity decide to amend the charges of the defendant

Although provisions of ACJA allows for amendment of charge at any point of the trial , there must be a stop to it.

This amendment will be the sixth amendment made by the prosecution.
