Aflao: 2 robbers sentenced 40 years imprisonment
The court on Wednesday March 27, 2022, sentenced the two for robbery, causing harm and possessing a firearm without authority.
Chief Inspector Bob Wuda, the prosecutor told the court that on 24/09/2020 at about 2.00 am, convicts and two others (at large), armed themselves with a machete and 5-rounds Taurus Ultra Lite 38 special revolver pistol and attacked a house at Kpogedi Zongo occupied by Nigerien merchants ostensibly to rob them of three brand new motorbikes.
He said, the robbers took four of the occupant’s hostage amidst firing the pistol at the roofing and robbed the victims of their phones and cash of Ghc 250.00.
On seeing the neighbours, convict Wisdom Dzeke and two others believed to be Togolese fled leaving behind Atitso Korshie who was trapped in the house with the pistol.
In the course of arresting Atitso, he aimed and shot at Ahmed Zibo age 23 who sustained a fracture on his left thigh.
Others pounced on Atitso and retrieved the pistol together with 9 live ammunition and called Police to the scene.
Victim Zibo was later rushed to St. Anthony Hospital at Dzodze where he spent months on admission.
However, convict Atitso Korshie mentioned Wisdom Dzeke and the other two as his accomplices.
Convicts went through trial and were found guilty leading to the sentence.
