Chainsaw operator gets 10 years for causing unlawful damage

 The Jasikan Circuit Court has sentenced a 31-year-old chainsaw operator, Kingsley Tabitey, to 10 years im­prisonment for causing unlawful damage.

He pleaded guilty to the charges and was convicted on his own plea.

Prosecuting, Assistant Superin­tendent of Police (ASP) Vincent Seth Kpodo told the court that Godsway Agboli, a student of Rev. Father Dogli Memorial Se­nior Technical School, at Ayoma, in the Jasikan Municipality, and part time commercial rider (Oka­da), lived in the same vicinity.

The court presided over by Mr. Alfred Kwabena Asiedu heard that the convict asked the student, to use his motorcycle to transport him to Tapa Amanya, in the Biakoye District.

Prosecution said while on the journey to Tapa Amanya, Tabitey asked the student to stop the motorcycle to enable him (con­vict) to urinate.

ASP Kpodo said after urinat­ing, they continued the journey, and Tabitey drew a knife and at­tempted to slash Agboli’s throat.

Prosecution said in the pro­cess, Agboli lost control of the steering and veered off the road into a nearside bush.

He said the convict snatched the motorcycle from the student and sped off. —
