19 Year Old Sentenced To 20 Years Imprisonment For Armed Robbery

A Cape Coast Circuit Court presided over by Mrs. Dorinda Smith Arthur, has sentenced a 19 year old boy to 20 years imprisonment.

Emmanuel Addae, popularly known at Assin Fosu in the Central Region as ‘Kofi Yesu’, was convicted on account of the robbery.

According to the prosecuting officer, Chief Inspector Gilbert Ayongo, the complainant, Irene Agyapong, who is also a resident of Assin Fosu was returning from work at about 7pm within the month of May this year when Kofi Yesu attacked her.

He was then arrested and arraigned before court and subsequently remanded in custody upon pleading guilty to his crime.

The court, pronouncing judgement on September 9, 2021, handed Kofi Yesu 20 years imprisonment for robbery to serve as a deterrent to others.
