A 25-year-old unemployed man, Kwabena Kwakye, who admitted robbing a frail coconut seller of GH¢140, has been sentenced to 16 years’ imprisonment.

The convict, popularly known as Bible and a resident of Afoako, near Jacobu in the Amansie Central District of the Ashanti Region, targeted the victim when he arrived at Afoako on May 4, 2019 for wake-keeping from Anwiankwanta.

He said the convict slapped the complainant and robbed him of his bag containing GH¢140.

Inspector Ofori narrated that the convict also pushed the victim into the gutter.

Some mourners came to his rescue but Kwakye managed to escape.

The prosecutor stated that he was later apprehended and handed over to the police.

The judge sentenced Kwakye to 16 years’ imprisonment in hard labour for robbery and stealing.

The sentences are to run concurrently.
