Four security operatives remanded for allegedly stealing EC boss’ husband’s vehicles
An Accra Circuit Court has remanded into police custody four national security operatives who allegedly stole vehicles belonging to Dr Charles Mensa, husband of Electoral Commission (EC) Chairperson Mrs Jean Mensa.
The accused persons are said to have destroyed the metallic gate of the residence of the complainant and entered his compound uninvited.
The group drove into the compound with two towing vehicles with registration numbers GX3976-20 and GW557V and made away with a Toyota Land Cruiser and a Nissan Patrol on Tuesday, July 27.
The accused persons are Alhaji Ahmed Bandoh, Albert Paa Kwesi Okyere, Kwasi Acheampong, George Antwi, and one Randy who is now at large.
They have been slapped with unlawful entry, stealing, causing unlawful damage and conspiracy to commit crime.
The court presided over by Evelyn Asamoah is yet to take their plea.
A bail application was also turned down on grounds that investigations were still ongoing.
Chief Inspector Emmanuel Haligah, who represented the prosecutor ASP Slyvester Asare in court, narrated that the accused persons were apprehended by some military men.
The soldiers spotted the suspects when they were exiting the house of Mr Mensa.
The military men handed them over to the police attached to the National Security.
The drivers of the respective towing vehicles, however, escaped with their vehicles.
Investigations are underway to arrest the drivers to aid in investigations.
