Two robbers has been sentenced to 44 years imprisonment by the Kumasi Circuit Court for robbing one Frank Tamakloe Roger of his Nokia mobile phone valued at GHC 200 and cash of GHC 80.

The two, Awudu Samead Kumfa and Samuel Oduro, alias Blackie Kofi Owusu, were found guilty for conspiring and robbing Roger.

According to Graphic Online reports, though they pleaded not guilty to the two counts of conspiracy to commit crime and robbery, the court, presided over by Mrs Afia Adu-Amankwah, found them guilty and convicted them accordingly.

They were each sentenced to 22 years in hard labour.

Their two accomplices, whose names were only given as China and Kobbi, are, however, at large.

Presenting the facts, Ms Cecilia Animah Peprah, State Prosecutor, told the court that on January 8, 2013, at about 8 p.m., the complainant, together with a friend, visited a drinking bar at Asafo.

She   said   Tamakloe   decided to go home around 3 a.m. According to her, few minutes after he left the bar, he heard someone shouting at him to stop.

“When he stopped, the first accused person, Awudu Samead Kumfa, held him by the trousers. Shortly afterwards, the other three accused persons also joined the first accused person,” she said.

She said according to the complainant, when the others joined, one of them hit his mouth with a bottle and he sustained injuries on his upper lip while the others subjected him to beatings.

Ms Peprah said in the course of the beatings, the second accused person took the complainant’s Nokia phone valued at GHC 200 and cash of GHC 80.

She said people later came to his rescue and the case was later reported to the police leading to the arrest of the convicts after investigations.
