Mampong (Ash), June
30, GNA – Two Fulani men caught with a stolen cow have been convicted by the
Asante-Mampong District Magistrate Court.

Ahmed Issah, a
herdsman, and Abdul Malik, farmer, pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to
steal and stealing.

They were each
sentenced to a fine of GH¢ 900.00 and would spend 10 months in prison should
they fail to pay the money.

Police Chief
Inspector James Obeng told the court presided over by Mr. Godwin Kpogli, that
the crime was committed on June 26.

The pair stole two
cows from a kraal at Anyinasu near Sekyedumase with the intention of selling
the animals at Nkoranza to raise money to celebrate the Muslim festival of
Eid-ul-Fitr.

The prosecution said
one of the cows escaped and as they arranged to transport the one left at about
0200 hours, a police patrol team emerged and on seeing the officers they
attempted to flee.

They were however,
prevented – arrested and handed over together with the animal to the Anyinasu
police for investigation.

Ibrahim Alhassan, a
livestock farmer, from whose kraal the cow was stolen, later reported to the
station to identify the animal.
