TWO Nigerian who robbed a mobile money vendor at Kasoa New Market Junction in the Central Region of Ghana on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, have been jailed for 40 years by the Kasoa Ofaakor Circuit Court.
The robbers, Bright Okwara and Ferdinand Obi, who carted away a total of GH¢ 11,800 reportedly committed that crime after the victim had withdrawn the money from a bank at Kasoa.
Detective Sargent Addai Boamah told the court before they were sentenced, that the two Nigerian nationals were on motorbikes, monitoring the activities of the victim after he withdrew the money from the bank.
They followed the victim from Kasoa New Market to Market Junction, where they robbed him.
Though the suspects succeeded in robbing the victim, he chased them with his motorbike and crashed them, leading to their arrest.
They were kept in remand for five months before they were sentenced for 40 years by His Lordship, Ebenezer Osei on Monday.
