2 Brothers Rob Ivorian

Two siblings, Noah and Ernest Sopui, who allegedly attacked an Ivorian at gunpoint and took his laptop, mobile phones and cash, have been arraigned for the offence.

The suspects were put in a court presided over by Aboagye Tandoh and charged with conspiracy to commit crime and robbery and they pleaded not guilty.

They have been remanded in police custody while the case has been adjourned to November 6, 2015.

The facts of the case as presented by the prosecuting officer, DSP K. Bempah, were that the complainant is Adje Jean Paul, an Ivorian national who is a staff of Nido Factory and a mobile phone repairer who resides along the Spintex Road, while Noah is into delivery service and Ernest is a driver.

According to him, the two suspects are brothers who reside at Lapaz.

He said on October 13, 2015 the complainant was on his way home after work when the suspects attacked him at gunpoint and took away his bag containing his Motorolla X685, Toshiba Laptop, and Samsung V9 mobile phone which he wanted to take to his shop for repairs.

In addition, he said the brothers also took his passport, ID card and other personal effects as well as GH¢38 and sped off. Fortunately for the complainant, the suspects later brought his Samsung mobile phone to him to repair and he immediately recognised the brothers.

The officer further said the complainant told the suspects to return later for the said phone and alerted the Nima Police who arrived and effected the arrest of the brothers.

The prosecuting officer noted that Ernest denied the offence in his cautioned statement and pleaded alibi, while his brother said he bought the phone from someone at Circle but failed to lead the police to the person.

They were arraigned after police concluded investigations.
