Agya Yaw Yeboah was an armed robber for 7 years before travelling abroad to deal in cocaine and other hard drugs.

Speaking of his experience on Kofi TV, Agya Yaw Yeboah said robbing others off their properties is not a very pleasant thing, but just like himself, others are forced into the act because of hardship.


He said "Armed robbery isn’t a gift from God. It’s the hardship and pain that force people into it. Me for instance my family was very poor. At certain times even food to eat was a problem. I was a member of a Tema gang before a friend of mine who was then in Germany introduced me to the real 419 group when he realised how smart I was."

But a statement issued by DSP Sheila Kessie Abayie-Buckman, said "The police headquarters has monitored a statement made by one Agya Yaw Yeboah, a purported reformed armed robber, who spoke on Kofi TV and same has been published by to the effect that he knows the people behind the supply of arms to armed robbers.
