Per a report by dailyguidenetwork.com, Nii Kotey was also ordered by an Accra Circuit Court to sign a bond of good behaviour for two years.

YEN.com.gh understands that the said judgment was pronounced by Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye on Wednesday, November 27, 2019.

The prosecutor in the case, Inspector Benson Benneh, asserted that Nii Kotey threatened to kill the complainant Dugbartey if he came to Abease to do business.

In other news, YEN.com.gh has learned that a prison inmate, Gerald Geoffrey Amenyo, has launched a book to inspire fellow prisoners.

The 161-paged book titled “Not Rejection but Direction”, is aimed at encouraging prisoners, especially those who believe they have been rejected by their families and loved ones, to not lose hope.

This, he explained, is because his book is “God’s directives to persons who feel rejected, abandoned, and forsaken, while in actual fact, they are on God’s calendar.”

Amenyo expressed the belief that his book will give readers assurance that God is able to make a difference in their situation.

Opening up on the ordeals prisoners go through, Amenyo said that aside from the congestion in the prison, most families of prisoners do not visit them, which makes them feel rejected and abandoned.
