Crime & Punishment of 2014-06-09

Prophet Nkansah’s case adjourned

The robbery case against Prophet Daniel Nkansah, the flagbearer of the New Vision Party (NVP) in Election 2012 was on Monday adjourned to June 16.

Prophet in Nkansah, on remand with eight others, was not brought to court. His counsel, Mr C.A. Chambers attributed his non-appearance to logistical constraints.

Prophet Nkansah and his son, Daniel Boahene Nkansah Jnr are being held on charges of conspiracy to commit crime and five counts of robbery.

The son, a student, who appeared before the court earlier, pleaded not guilty to the charges and is on bail.

Prophet Nkansah has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit crime, and five counts of robbery.

Prophet Nkansah, his son and 10 others, are said to have robbed five workers of XY Canis Majoris Company Limited, and taken away a sunny video camera, mobile phones, computers, cheque books, certificates, a driver’s license and GH?1,000.00.

The case before the court was that the complainants were Stephen Ped Andam, Geshon Essel, Billy Apeku Ken, Isaac Tetteh Korgbey and Emmanuel Nana Kwaku Badu.

According to the prosecution, Mr Andam is the Chief Executive Officer of XY Majoris Company Limited located at Atico near Kaneshie.

The prosecution said Mr Andam in December last year, rented four stores from Prophet Nkansah for 10 years and paid GH¢111,680 as rent advance.

The company was using three out of the four stores whilst Prophet Nkansah’s son occupied one of them.

On February 1, this year, Mr Andam and his workers approached Nkansah Jnr as agreed with Prophet Nkansah to vacate the store to enable his workers to move in.

The prosecutor said after the meeting, a brawl ensued but after it Mr Andam and his workers resumed work in their offices.

Nkansah Jnr informed his father about the brawl. Prophet Nkansah therefore, went to the company’s premises with a group of about 10 on board his (Prophet Nkansah’s) pick up vehicle, armed with cutlasses and other implements, and attacked Mr Andam and five other workers.

In the process, prosecution said, the accused persons and the group of men made away with Mr Andam’s mobile phone, a computer with its charger, cheque books, an international driver’s license, one IPad and cash of GH¢55,000.00.

They also took away Mr Essel’s mobile phone and GH¢500.00, whilst Mr Billy Ken Apeku had his phone, a computer and cash of GH¢700.00 stolen.

According to the prosecutor, they also took from Mr Korgbey a computer and a Sony video camera and robbed Mr Emmanuel Nana Kweku Badu of his wallet containing GH¢1,000.00 with identity cards.
