The Enchi District Magistrate court has remanded a farmer into police custody for alleged stealing of money.

The accused person, Sambia Kaakyire, 52, pleaded not guilty to the charge of stealing and would reappear before the court on Wednesday, April 7.

Police Detective Inspector Joseph Kwadwo Agyare, told the court that, the complainant in the case Amandu Bukari is a farmer and lives in the same room with the accused at Jensue in the Aowin Municipality.

On March 4, 2021, at about 1730 hours, the principal witness, Constance Moro, came to Jensue township to buy some drugs and while there it began to rain so she decided to seek refuge in the nearby house where the accused live.

He said Kaakyire invited Constance into the room while the complainant was fast asleep.

Detective Agyare said the accused person who had planned to take advantage of Constance gave her GH¢1,000.00 cash and pleaded to have sexual intercourse with her.

The prosecution said the complainant suddenly woke up and while he was searching his pocket, Kaakyire fled from the scene and left behind Constance.

Mr Agyare said Constance narrated her ordeal to the complainant and also handed over the GH¢1,000.00 to him.

He informed the court that the complainant organized a search party to comb the entire Jensue township to get hold of the accused but there was no sign of him for two days.

The complainant later had a tip-off that Kaakyire was hiding at a cottage, where he was arrested and brought to the Enchi police station.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
