He will make his next appearance in court  on Tuesday, February 10.

Police Chief Inspector, Hannah Acheampong, told the court, presided over by Mr. William Boampong, that the incident happened on July 21, last year.

The accused and his fugitive accomplice, whose name was only given as “The Game,” reportedly attacked the victim, Frederick Afriyie, at the Atonsu-Agogo Lorry Station at about 8:30 p.m. and fled with his cash, phones and other valuables.
