Nsuta (Ash) Aug 01, GNA – The Nsuta Circuit
Court, presided over by Ms. Lydia Osei Marfo, has sentenced two robbers to a
total of 90 years imprisonment.

Ferdinand Manu would serve for 50 years while
Tijani Issaka would be doing 40 years.

The court further ordered the pair to refund
cash of GH¢25,000.00 and return one laptop computer and six mobile phones
seized from their victims after serving out the sentence.

The convicts faced charges of conspiracy to
commit crime and robbery and they both pleaded not guilty.

Police Chief Inspector Nana Boamah told the
court that the convicts together with three others on the run, armed with guns,
raided the Hope Bakery at Asante-Mampong, on August 30, 2015.

They severely beat up the Managing Director,
Mr. Kwabena Badu, and his workers and made off with cash of GH¢25,000.00,
laptop and mobile phones.

Manu an employee of the bakery arranged with
Issaka and three fugitive accomplices to rob the bakery.

The prosecution said the two men had met at a
police cell in Oforikrom, where they had been detained over their suspected
involvement in separate crimes the police were investigating and that was where
they planned the robbery plot.

Manu informed Issaka that his employer was a
successful businessman and sought his assistance to rob him.

They brought in the three others after they
were granted police enquiry bail, worked out the plan and struck on the
appointed day.

The two were arrested based upon police
intelligence.

Before handing down the punishment to the
robbers, Ms. Osei Marfo, labelled Manu, the mastermind of the robbery, a
traitor.
