Nkrumah convicted on his own plea would serve 18 months imprisonment in default. In addition, he was ordered to pay GH¢300 compensation to Mr Boamah for his medical bills. Prosecuting, Police Chief Inspector Robert Essiam told the court presided over by Mr Joseph Blay that sometime in September last year, Nkrumah assaulted Boamah's younger sister, Madam Adjoa Obour.
