The Awutu Ofaakor Circuit Court presided over by Ebenezer Osei Darko, has sentenced four armed robbers to 72 years imprisonment for robbing and gangbanging a woman with a four-month-old pregnancy at Awutu Bereku in the Awutu Senya West District of the Central Region.
The convicts, Solomon Quaye (26), Edwin Paa Kwesi Tetteh (28), Benjamin Mensah (22) and Paul Sakyi (24) were arrested at their hiding place at Agbogbloshie in Accra.
Three of the robbers were arrested at their hideaway at Agbogbloshie in Accra, while the fourth robber was arrested at Awutu Bereku.
According to Inspector Stephen Tamaklo of the Awutu Bereku Police Command, the convicts were arrested in connection with the stealing of a TV set.
“During our investigation, we arrested the suspects in connection with the robbery, and we put them before the court. Judgment was given on the matter and the four robbers were given 18-year jail sentence each with hard labour.”
“Our sources say the gang leader, Solomon Quaye, led the robbers to break into three houses, and he went ahead and raped a woman carrying a four-month old pregnancy. He is from Bereku, but went and settled at Agbogbloshie” Chief Inspector Stephen Tamaklo said.
