At an Accra Circuit Court presided over by Justice Francis Obiri, the two vehemently denied the charge of intentionally and unlawfully causing harm to Owusu and Mensah through gunshots.

They were charged with robbery.

According to the judge, the sentence is to deter others from engaging in such act.

The prosecutor Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Ernest Acheampong told the court that on May 24 this year, at about 1545 hours, the Greater Accra Regional Police Command received a distress call that a gang of armed robbers had invaded the Cinema Centre projection room, where the account office was also located, amidst firing of gunshot within the West Hills Mall at Weija.

DSP Acheampong said the Police moved swiftly to the scene and managed to arrest Ayomba and Jali. A foreign made pistol with 10 rounds of ammunitions, an empty shell and pair of scissors were retrieved from them.
