Prosecuting, Chief Supt. Duuti Tuaruka told the court that Forfoe, a driver of the complainant, armed with the information that his employers had in their possession $10,000 in the car, conspired with the others who robbed them on January, 13 at about 1:30 am.

The robbers succeeded in robbing the complainant of $10,000, GH¢8,000, one platinum with two carat diamond engagement ring worth $30,000, one platinum with diamond eternity engagement ring valued at $20,000, one platinum wedding ring worth $2,000, iphone 6 valued at $900.

Sentencing the accused persons, Mr Tandoh said the court took into consideration the number of days the convicts had been in custody and also the fact that the accused persons readily admitted their guilt.

The judge accordingly sentenced the two, to 25 years each in hard labour while Lord and Anane were remanded in custody to re-appear on February 5, 2016.

The police says the accused persons were arrested when the car got involved in an accident at the Tetteh Quarshie Interchange in Accra while the search for the other suspects on the run have been intensified.
