An Accra Circuit court has sentenced Prophet Daniel Nkansah, a former presidential candidate of the New Vision Party to month imprisonment and a fine of 1500 cedis for causing unlawful damage.

Prophet Nkansah, his son, Daniel Boahene Nkansah Jnr and eight others – two of who are currently on the run – were charged with six counts of conspiracy to rob and robbery. 

The other accused persons are Joseph Tetteh, James Quansah Afful, Otukunor Sackey, Emmanuel Salami Azumah, Samuel Kweku alias Sammy Tuga and Richard Annor Baidoo aka Anold. Delivering his  judgement, presiding judge Justice Francis Obiri, ruled out the intention of robbery in the case of Prophet Nkansah.

He said Prophet Nkansah had only engaged the other accused persons to either go and beat up the complainants or drive them away but not to rob them, adding that “that was not what A2 (Prophet Nkansah) had intended to do.”

He further stated that per a CCTV footage tendered in evidence, Afful and Otukunor were captured picking some items from the office of the complainants and accordingly charged them for robbery.

The accused persons are said to have on the 1st of February 2014  robbed Stephen Ped-Andam of his Dell laptop with charger, cheque books, international driver’s licence, certificates, iPad 32GB, Samsung S4 phone and GH¢55,000.

According to the prosecution,Prophet Nkansah connived with his son and the 10 others, to steal a Blackberry Q10 mobile phone and an amount of GH¢500 belonging to one Geshon Essel, while another person, Billy Apeku Ken, also claims his Samsung mobile phone, Dell laptop and GH¢750 were missing.

The fourth complainant, Isaac Tetteh Korgbey, also accused Prophet Nkansah and the others of the disappearance of his Dell laptop and Sony video camera. One Emmanuel Nana Kwaku Badu also complained of his missing wallet containing GH¢1,000 and I.D. cards.

Prophet Nkansah, his son and the others had all denied the charges.

The trial judge said Tetteh, Azumah, Sammy Tuga and Anold would be convicted for the charge of conspiracy to cause damage and causing unlawful damage.

The court also sentenced Prophet Nkansah’s son who was similarly charged with conspiracy to cause damage to a day with a fine of 1000 cedis. While the remaining eight were sentenced to two days imprisonment respectively.
