A court in Accra has fined a 46-year-old driver GHS960 or in default, serve an eight-week jail term for destroying the fence wall of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s Nima residence.
Antaru Issaka was charged with careless and inconsiderate driving and causing damage. He was also slapped with the charges of driving without a license, use of a motor vehicle with an expired roadworthy certificate among others.
Isaaka pleaded guilty to all the charges, Ghana News Agency (GNA) reported. He was thus convicted on his own plea and sentenced by the court presided over by Ama Adomako Kwakye.
Isaaka, a mechanic was driving a Mercedes-Benz ML 320 with registration number GS 5885 Z when the incident happened on May 15, 2021.
The brake of the vehicle allegedly failed and to avoid hitting the vehicles in front of him, he veered off the road and rammed into the fence wall of the president’s house.
The accused was found to be an unlicensed driver during the investigation.
In other news, a former National Security Advisor, Brigadier-General Nunoo Mensah (rtd) warned that Ghana is slowly becoming a haven for anarchy in every format under President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Nunoo Mensah’s warning comes on the back of the forceful removal of the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator by members of the dreaded Delta Force—a vigilante group affiliated to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“If we don’t deal with them and pull out, we’re heading into political anarchy,” he stated on Starr FM’s Morning Starr and monitored by YEN.com.gh on Tuesday, May 18, 2021.
“Ghana is sliding slowly but surely into anarchy,” he stressed.
DCOP Ayensu Opare Addo (rtd) was forcefully removed from office as the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator by some members of the disbanded vigilante group affiliated to the ruling government—the New Patriotic Party (NPP)—the Delta Force.
The thugs claimed they were officials of the embattled National Security.
Delta Force dominated the news in 2017 after the group stormed the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council to physically drag out a Security Liaison appointed by President Nana Akufo-Addo.

Kareem attended Wesley Girls High School from 2006 to 2009.
Narrating her torturous ordeal in a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Kareem who is now a Medical Doctor said authorities at her alma mater prevented her from contesting for the school’s prefectship because she is a Muslim.
