Kwaku Duah pleaded guilty, saying he had an issue with its owner and therefore decided to “teach him a lesson”.

The Court convicted him of his own plea and handed him a 6-year sentence with hard labour.

The court has asked the accused to pay a compensation of GH15,000 to the owner of the tricycle, and a compensation of GH3600 also to Ghana Police Service, Kukuom.
