Court Orders Arrest Of Prophet Nkansah

An Accra Circuit court on Thursday ordered the arrest of Prophet Daniel Nkansah, the flag-bearer of the New Vision Party (NVP) for failing to appear before it.

Prophet Nkansah, who is said to be at large and his son, Daniel Boahene Nkansah Junior, were arraigned before the court on the charges of conspiracy to commit crime and five counts of robbery.

Nkansah Junior, a student who appeared before the court, presided over by Mr. Francis Obiri, pleaded not guilty to the charges and was remanded into police custody to re-appear on Tuesday, March 4, despite a bail application by Mr. C.K. Hoeyi, their counsel.

Prophet Nkansah, his son and 10 others were said to have robbed five workers of XY Canis Majoris Company Limited and took away a sunny video camera, mobile phones, computers, check books, certificates, a driver’s license and several thousands of Cedis.

The prosecution told the court that a careful look at the CCTV camera, showed that the action taken by the accused person were nasty.

According to the prosecution, the police was conducting further investigations into the matter and pleaded with the court to remand the accused.

The case before the court was that the complainants are Stephen Ped Andam, Geshon Essel,  Billy Apeku Ken,  Isaac Tetteh Korgbey and Emmanuel  Nana Kwaku Badu.

The prosecution said Mr Andam is the Chief Executive officer of XY Majoris Company Limited located at Atico, near Kaneshie.

It said, Mr Andam in December last year, rented four stores from Prophet Nkansah for a period of 10 years and paid GH¢111,680 as rent advance.

The prosecution said the company is now using three out of the four stores with his son, Nkansah Junior, occupying one of them.

On February 1, this year, Mr Andam and his workers approached Nkansah Junior, as agreed upon with Prophet Nkansah to vacate the store to enable his workers to move in.

The prosecution said after the meeting, a brawl ensued, but Mr Andam and his workers resumed work in their offices.

Nkansah Junior, it said informed his father about the brawl. Prophet Nkansah, therefore, went to the company’s premises with a group of about 10 people on board his (Prophet Nkansah’s) pick up vehicle, armed with cutlasses and other implement, and attacked Mr Andam and five other workers.

In the process, the prosecution said the accused persons and the group made away with Mr Andam’s mobile phone, a computer with its charger, cheque books,  an international driver’s license, one iPad and cash of GH¢55,000.

They also took Mr Essel‘s mobile phone and GH¢500,  whiles  Mr Billy Ken Apeku had his phone, a computer and cash of GH¢700 stolen.

According to the prosecution, they also took from Mr Korgbey, a computer and a Sony video camera and robbed Mr Emmanuel Nana Kweku Badu of his wallet containing GH¢1,000 and identity cards.

The matter was reported to the police and Nkansah Junior was arrested on February 4 and during investigations, a sonny video camera was retrieved from Nkansah Junior.

The prosecution said efforts were being made to arrest Prophet Nkansah. GNA
