According to a report filed by Graphic.com.gh, Kwame who pleaded guilty to the charges leveled against him at an Accra Circuit court said his work was not earning him enough to take care of the pregnant woman.
He however pleaded to the court to be lenient with him.
The Court presided over by Susana Eduful, considered his guilty plea, and the fact that he was remorseful, and sentenced him to eight months imprisonment with hard labor.
Police Chief Samuel Ahiabor told the Court that the complainants, Madam Gladys Ofosu-Appiah, Madam Vida Manyo, Dora Amankwa, and Gifty Akaweh, all dealt in second-hand clothing and shoes at Kantamanto Market.
He said on August 9, 2021, at about 0600 hours, the complainants reported at their business centres and noticed that their wares were stolen.
They lodged a formal complaint to the Police and upon a tip-off, Kingsley was grabbed in the market with one sack of baby clothing.
During investigations, Kingsley admitted the offence and confessed that earlier in the day at about 0300 hours, he went to the market and stole two sacks of second-hand clothing and a sack of second-hand shoes.
