Richard Jakpa, the third accused in the ongoing Ambulance case has filed processes to compel two former Health Ministers Alban Bagbin and Alex Segbefia as well as Chief of Defence Staff Lt. General Oppong Peprah and others to testify in the ongoing trial.

Richard Jakpa ended his testimony on Tuesday, July 9, and has been asked by the court to call his witnesses.

Richard Jakpa notified the court that he will call eight witnesses some of whom are to be subpoenaed.

Part of the eight to be subpoenaed include the Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin and former Health Minister Alex Segbefia.

The judge, however, noticed that the order to subpoena the witnesses did not include a request for documents that should be presented by the witnesses.

Lawyers for Richard Jakpa in court on Thursday, however, revealed that the Chief of Defence Staff Lt. General Thomas Oppong Peprah and Military Secretary Air Commodore Adu Gyamfi are to be subpoenaed as well.

The case has been adjourned to July 18.
