Two teenagers jailed 20 years for robbery

The Nkawie Circuit Court, presided over by Mr Michael Johnson Abbey has sentenced two teenage boys to 10 years imprisonment each for robbery at Ohwim, near Kumasi.

Kwabena Owusu and Patrick Agyei pleaded not guilty but were found guilty after the trial and was convicted.

They were said to be part of a gang of robbers who attacked residents of Ohwim New Site in the Atwima-Nwabiagya North District on September 18, 2018 and robbed them of their valuables.

Police Inspector Ruth Gborson told the Court that the convicts together with two others, who are on the run, broke into a number of houses and made away with items such as wristwatches, television sets, mobile phones, jewelries, assorted perfumes and unspecified amounts of monies, among other others.

He said the case was reported to the Suame police and upon investigations Kwabena Owusu was arrested who then mentioned Agyei and the other two as their accomplices.

They were then charged and brought before the Court.
