Man in jail

An 18-year-old auto electrician, who robbed a woman of her mobile phone at Nima in Accra, has been jailed for 15 years by the Accra Circuit Court.

The Accra Circuit Court has sentenced 18 yr old Fuad Mohammed to 15 years jail term after proving him guilty of robbing Mr Aboagye Tandoh off his phone in 2017.

Mr Aboagye who was returning home from a wedding at the St Kizito Catholic Church at Nima was attacked by Faud snatching his Mobile phone in 2017.

Yussif Mohammed who was also accused in connection with the same robbery, was however acquitted and discharged after the court prosecution failed to prove him guilty.

According to a presecution presented by the prosecutor, Chief Inspector W.K. Boateng, the victim, Mercy Awunia, was attacked on her way home from a wedding at the St Kizito Catholic Church at Nima.

Yussif and Fuad were said to have trailed her on a motorbike and when Mercy reached the Nima roundabout, Fuad got down from the motorbike and pounced on her and snatched her mobile phone.

Whilst fleeing, they ran into an oncoming vehicle and fell from the motorbike and were arrested by the Nima Police patrol team.
