The Sunyani High Court has sentenced three suspected armed robbers to life imprisonment for their involvement in the robbery at the Brong-Ahafo Catholic Co-operative Society for Development (BACCSOD) office at Wenchi.

The three are, Sheriff Adams, also known as Alhaji Fresh, aged 31, Osei Kufuor, aged 32 and Kwabena Yeboah, 32, pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy to commit crime and robbery.

The other accomplices, Kwadwo Francis, 35, and Edmund Bawuah, 27, were acquitted and discharge after the trial.

Superintendent of Police Alhaji Maama Arhin, Brong Ahafo Regional crime officer told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Sunyani, on Wednesday, that the three suspects were among six hardened armed robbers arrested by the Sunyani Police Patrol Team at the Yawhima Police barrier.

He said the Police upon a tip off, arrested the robbers in a taxi cab at 0300 hours on their return from an operation at Wenchi on Thursday February 26, 2015.

Alhaji Arhin explained that the gang tied up the watchman, broke into the premises and stole money and items, and later dumped the watchman at the outskirts of the town.

He said an unspecified amount of money, four mobile phones, two pistols, knives, a crow bar, a military uniform, cartridges and other offensive weapons were later found on them.

The Regional Crime officer disclosed that Adams and four others also on June 13, 2014, robbed Tonket Limited, a Nestle products distribution company in Sunyani and nearly killed the company’s accountant.

He said the five were arrested and remanded in prison custody for sometime but were granted bail by a Circuit Court at Fiapre, near Sunyani.  

Alhaji Arhin said the group after their bail later robbed some financial institutions in the Region, including the Sunyani Agency of the Derma Rural Bank and the Bechem Agency of Bomaa Rural Bank.
