Kunya was also charged with three conspiracy charges, stealing firearms, preparation to commit crime, possession of firearms without authority and unlawful entry, causing harm and robbery.

Suna was charged with two counts of conspiracy, a count each for stealing of firearm, preparation to commit crime, possession of firearm without authority, unlawful entry and robbery.

A fourth accused, Sodzi Edem, alias "Stone", a Togolese steel bender, was however acquitted and discharged for want of prosecution.

YEN.com.gh understands that the arrest of Gbede, the leader of the group, comes as a huge relief to the residents in the community in which the robberies were taking place.

The court also ordered that Suna be sent to serve his jail term in Sunyani, in the Brong Ahafo Region, away from Gbede, Kunya and their cohorts who have since threatened to unleash hell on him for confessing and revealing details about the group.
