2 remanded over robbery

The Accra Circuit Court has remanded two persons in police custody over robbery and abetment to commit crime.

They are Eliawu Dawud, an Okada Rider and Alihu Zakaria, a businessman.

The court presided over by Mrs Ellen Offei-Ayeh adjourned the case to November 11, 2022.

Police Inspector Daniel Ofori Appiah told the court that the complainant was Alidu Hamidu, a businessman, who resided at Mamprobi, Accra.

Prosecution said on October 25, 2022, at about 2am, Mr Hamidu asked Habibu Munkaila to ride a motorbike to Accra to collect GH₵ 383,500.00 from a customer for him.

Police Inspector Daniel Ofori Appiah said Munkaila went for the money and on his way back to Achimota, he detected that Dawud and another person, now at large, were chasing him with an unregistered motorbike.

Prosecution said Munkaila climbed the pavement on the other side of the road towards the Nima Police station for refuge.

Insp Appiah said Dawud allegedly started shooting indiscriminately, which caused Munkaila to fall from the motorbike at the NDC Party office on the Nima Highway.

The court heard that Munkaila started shouting for help, but Dawud gave another warning shot and pointed the pistol at Munkaila, ordering him to hand over the backpack and its contents.

Prosecution said Munkaila pleaded with Dawud, but he snatched the backpack containing money and bolted.

Insp Appiah said on October 27, 2022, Munkaila led the police to Caprice and identified the motorbike used to perpetuate the crime.

Zakaria was identified as the person, who received the motorbike for sale after the robbery.

Onsp Appiah said Dawud mentioned the name of Etoo as his accomplice, now at large. – GNA
