2 remanded for robbing cabbie of car

A Ho circuit court has remanded Harrison Ganyo, a driver, and Gaffaru Ezetu, a mechanic, into prison custody for allegedly robbing a cabbie of his vehicle.


The accused, who robbed Emmanuel Nyanuvor of his taxi at gunpoint, pleaded guilty, and will appear again before court on October 11.
Police Inspector Agnes Ahiable told the court presided by Madam Pricilla Dikro that in June 2018, accused purchased a locally made pistol from Jerome Titriku, a blacksmith, based at Adaklu Ahunda.
The court said on July 28, 2018, accused armed with the pistol travelled to Accra ostensibly to rob.
Insp Ahiable said accused engaged the services of the complainant at Atomic Junction, Accra, to use his vehicle to convey them to Ho.
Prosecution told the court that when the vehicle reached a place near Adaklu Hehekpe, Ganyo shot the cabbie in the right arm, threw him out of the vehicle, and drove off, adding that there were two mobile phones worth GH¢350.00, and GH¢200.00 in the vehicle.
Insp Ahiable said a witness in the case came to the aid of the complainant, and took him to the Volta Regional Hospital.
She said accused, who were later involved in an accident at Adaklu Tsrefe, abandoned the vehicle and escaped.
Insp Ahiable said on July 29, 2018, at about 2a.m, police at Adaklu-Waya upon a tipoff, arrested Ganyo at a hideout, and the youth of Adaklu-Wumenu, grabbed Ezetu and handed him over to the police.- GNA
