Stephen Ped Andam, the complainant in the robbery trial of Prophet Daniel Yaw Nkansah, a failed presidential hopeful and founder of the New Vision Pentecostal Church, has said that other accomplices in the robbery are currently on the run.
?Other accomplices who were in the car are on the run; Prophet Nkansah brought them?? he told C A Chambers, counsel for Prophet Nkansah, during cross-examination.
Mr. Andam, a tenant in Prophet Nkansah?s store at Atico Junction in Accra, further told the court, presided over by Francis Obiri, that Prophet Nkansah arrived in his Toyota vehicle having on board the accomplices.
He said the accused person attacked him and his workers with offensive weapons they (the attackers) had picked from among the tools of a carpenter he (Andam) had hired to work in his store on the day of the incident.
At the last adjourned date, C A Chambers had also claimed that the complainant had attacked Prophet Nkansah and his wife.
According to him, there was evidence to prove that the complainant and his ?boys? had attacked the accused person with a pinch bar, hammer and saw, a claim the complainant had denied.
Sitting continues today.
The ?controversial? man of God cum politician, is facing six counts of conspiracy to rob and robbery with his son, Daniel Boahene Nkansah Jnr. and eight others ? two of whom are currently at large.
They are said to have robbed Andam on February 1 of his Samsung S4, iPhone, Dell laptop with a charger, cheque books, international driver?s licence, certificates, iPad 32GB and cash of GH?55,000.
Prophet Nkansah, in connivance with his son and the 10 others, are also alleged to have made away with a Blackberry Q10 mobile phone and GH?500 belonging to one Geshon Essel, while another person, Billy Apeku Ken, also claimed his Samsung mobile phone, Dell laptop and GH?750 were missing.
The fourth complainant, Isaac Tetteh Korgbey, also accused the man of God and the 11 others making away with his Dell laptop and Sony video camera.
One Emmanuel Nana Kwaku Badu has also complained of his missing wallet containing GH?1,000 and I.D. cards.
Prophet Nkansah, his son and the others have all pleaded not guilty to the charges.
According to the facts of the case, all the complainants ? Geshon Essel, Billy Apeku Ken, Isaac Tetteh Korgbey and Emmanuel Nana Kwaku Budu ? are workers of XY Canis Majoris Company Limited with the first complainant, Andam, being the Chief Executive Officer of the company located at Atico, a suburb of Accra.
According to Inspector Emmanuel Afful, Nkansah Jnr. is a student and that Andam, during December last year, rented four stores from Prophet Nkansah for a period of 10 years and paid GH?111,680 as rent advance.
The prosecutor told the court that on February 1, 2014, Andam and his workers approached Nkansah Jnr. as agreed with Prophet Nkansah, to vacate the store to enable them to move in, but this resulted in an exchange of words among them.
Andam and his workers finally went back into the three stores to start the day?s business.
Nkansah Jnr. called to inform his father [Prophet Nkansah] who rushed to the scene and left after discussions with his son.
The prosecutor said that Prophet Nkansah returned a few minutes later with a group of young men numbering about 10, on board his pickup vehicle, armed with cutlasses and other lethal weapons, and together they attacked the complainants in their shop, robbing them of items and money in the process.
The case was reported to the police and Nkansah Jnr. was subsequently arrested on February 4.
