Insist on Your Right to Education

Ghanaian Justice

7yrs jail for raping 2-year-old
... 10yrs for selling wee
... 25yrs for Stealing

Juaso (Ash), July 30, GNA - Kwaku Oppong, a 23-year-old farmer has been sentenced to seven years imprisonment in hard labour by the Juaso Circuit Court for defiling a two-year-old girl at Agogo. Oppong pleaded guilty.

Prosecuting, Police Detective Inspector Eric Atatsi told the court that on July 10 the convict lured the victim when she was playing with her mates on their school premises during break time. He took her to his veranda and sexually abused her but her screams attracted one Yaw Asamoah to the scene who caught Oppong in the act.

He took to his heels but Agogo Police later arrested him at Pataban, a farming community near Agogo.

Wee peddler sentenced to 10 years imprisonment

Kumasi, July 30, GNA - Sunday Adongo, alias "Olusey", aged 24, has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in hard labour by a Kumasi Circuit Court for possessing 66.7 grammes of Indian hemp. He pleaded guilty.
Police Inspector Philip Bebli told the Court that on July 23, last year, the police had a tip off that some people were peddling drugs at the Race Course in Kumasi. They went to the place and caught Adongo with the drug and when questioned he said it belonged to another person but he could not lead police to the owner.

Burkinabe sentenced to 25 years for robbery

A 25-year old Burkinabe, Ibrahim Bishib who, together with two others now on the run, undertook a daring raid on a supermarket at Nhyiaeso in Kumasi has been sentenced to 25 years imprisonment for robbery by a Kumasi Circuit Court. He pleaded not guilty.

The Court presided over by Mr Emmanuel Amoah-Yartey, heard that Bishib and two accomplices, on April 16, stormed a supermarket owned by Mr Eric Opoku at about 2000 hours.
Armed with a locally manufactured pistol, they ordered that the sales should be surrendered.
Mr Opoku, who at the time was with the wife, had other ideas and decided not to allow himself to be bullied by the robbers without a fight.

Mr Opoku picked a tin of cream milk and threw it at the convict, hitting him on the forehead and it sentng him sprawling on the ground. He raised the alarm attracting neighbours to the scene. Bishib was arrested after a hot chase by the people and handed over to a police patrol team that arrived there but the two others escaped.
