A man has been jailed for threatening to kill her Grandmother over a key
A 32-year-old driver has been sentenced to 36 months imprisonment by the Akim Swedru Circuit Court for threatening to kill his 73 year old grandmother.
The convict, Kwabena Oppong, who appeared before the court, presided over by Mr. Emmanuel Brew, pleaded guilty to the “threat of death” charge against him.
Presenting facts of the case to the court, Police Inspector Richard K. Sabbah told the court that Madam Adwoa Nyarko Oye, the complainant, lives with her grandson, Oppong, in a village near Akenkensu in the Birim South District.
Inspector Sabbah said on January 27, this year, Oppong returned from farm and requested a key from his 73-year-old grandmother, but she refused to give it out.
He said Oppong became offended and attacked Madam Oye, before “putting the fear of death in her”.
Inspector Sallah said when the old lady could no longer bear the situation she lodged a complaint at the Akenkensu police station, Ghana News Agency reported.
