Businessman remanded for allegedly robbing woman of car
An Accra circuit court on Thursday remanded a businessman for allegedly robbing a woman of her Toyota Rav 4, valued at GH¢140,000.00.
Isaac Boamah, also known as “Jah Rule”, pleaded not guilty to the charges of conspiracy to commit crime and robbery, and will re-appear in court on April 15.
His two accomplices whose names were given as Fuseini and Alhassan were on the run.
Police Chief Inspector Seth Frimpong told the court, presided by Mr Aboagye Tandoh that Ms Cynthia Baidu, the complainant in the case, was a staff of the National Security Council secretariat in Accra.
He said Boamah, Fuseini and Alhassan were also residents of Accra.
Chief Inspector Frimpong said on March 16, at about 5:20am, the complainant was returning from an all-night church service from Alhaji, a suburb of Accra, with two househelps on board her Toyota Rav 4.
He said on reaching her gate at Tantra Hills, also in Accra, Boamah and the two others emerged on a motorcycle and fired a warning shot and ordered her together with her househelps to get out of the car.
Chief Insp Frimpong said Boamah, who was not wearing a face mask like the others, pointed an AK 47 assault rifle at the woman.
Prosecution said Boamah drove the car away, adding that the car contained two Gotta mobile phones, one Galaxy note 9, one iPhone 6, all valued at GH¢7,000.00, and an unspecified amount of money in the complainant’s handbag.
The court heard that the woman reported the case to the police at Mile 7, in Accra and Boamah was arrested and the vehicle retrieved from a spot close to his house. – GNA
