Abbey that, Addai and his accomplice, who is on the run, attacked and robbed
two friends on October 24, this year.

hired the services of the first complainant, Frederick Ofori, to use his
tricycle (rickshaw), to convey them from Ahwerewa to Bonteeso, another
community in the Municipality.

The Prosecution said
Ofori asked his friend, Emmanuel Nuako Manu to join him on the journey.

the accused emerged from a bush and ordered the motor rider to park near a
bushy area.

two pulled a locally-made pistol, a double-edged hammer and a cutlass,
attacking the rider and his friend.

The accused and his
accomplice succeeded in taking away their mobile phones, a cash of GH¢270.00
and a pair of slippers and bolted with the booty.

said a report was made to the Police and on November 09, this year, Addai was
spotted at Ahwerewa and he was arrested.

He said during
Police interrogation, he denied the offence but after further investigations,
he was charged and brought before the Court.
