Charles Antwi was sentenced to 10-years imprisonment for illegally possessing an arm on his first appearance in court. The sentence was immediately pronounced after the suspect confessed to wanting to kill President Mahama so he could become president.

An Accra Human Rights court, however, quashed the earlier judgment of the Accra Circuit Court which sentenced Charles Antwi.
