An Accused suspect standing trial for robbery in Kumasi provided a little comic relief for all present at his trial today by correcting the prosecution in open court.
“My Lord, I only took the laptop from the victim when he was fast asleep. I did not rob him.”
Razak Abdallah, along with two others, stood trial today on charges of robbery, and conspiracy to commit a crime. Along with his accomplices Gaddafi Mubarak and Ibrahim Jibril., the trio have all plead not guilty to the charges leveled against him.
Chief Inspector Rejoice Samatu, addressing a court presided by Mrs Mary Nsenkyire, that around 2 a.m. on October 15, 2016, the three accused persons armed with knives and a locally manufactured handgun attacked a victim in his own room and demanded his mobile phone and money.

According to the Chief Inspector, out of fear, the victim handed over the phone to them, after which they searched the room and made away with an HP laptop, valued at GH¢900, a Samsung Galaxy phone, valued at GH¢700, and cash of GH¢300.
According to the prosecution, the victim was able to identify the suspects at Frafra Zongo, a Kumasi suburb, around 3 p.m. the following day, October 16, 2016. However, the accused denied the accusation and subjected the victim to severe beatings, after which they further robbed him of GH¢150.
