Two in court for stealing insurance company’s computers
Two persons have been hauled before the Accra Circuit Court over two stolen HP desktop computers worth GH₵10,000.00, belonging to Enterprise Life Limited.
The two accused persons are 23-year-old Emelia Kudaya and 33-year-old Musah Bahari.
Kudaya, who is a cleaner has been accused of stealing the two HP computers, while Bahari is accused of dishonestly receiving the stolen laptops.
The facts of the case presented by the prosecutor, Chief Inspector John S.K. Gohoho, was that the complainant in the case is an insurer at the Enterprise Life Limited, Nima branch.
According to the prosecution, on September 9, this year, the complainant’s company was running a shift system due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions and left her HP desktop computer in the office.
The complainant resumed work on September 22, 2020, and detected that the computer was nowhere to be found.
“A search was conducted but to no avail. While the investigation was ongoing, on October 15, 2020, one of the security guards reported the loss of his mobile phone.
“On the same day, another security guard went to the Nima roundabout to repair his mobile phone and saw the missing mobile phone in the second accused person’s shop and confronted him as to where he got the mobile phone,” Chief Inspector Gohoho said.
The first accused person admitted having bought the mobile phone and sold it to the second accused person.
She also confessed to having stolen the two computers and sold them to Bahari for GH₵300.00 and GH₵350.00 respectively.
“The second accused person was arrested and confessed to police having received the two computers from Emelia Kudaya but sold them to one Christian Nyarko [now at large],” the prosecution said.
The two have been granted bail in the sum GH₵10,000.00 with two sureties. The case has been adjourned to November 24, 2020.
