Court remands goat thief into Senior Correctional Centre


Tema, April 21, GNA – A district court in Tema on Friday remanded a 19-year-old labourer into the Senior Correctional Centre at Maamobi in Accra, for six months for stealing a goat.

     Moses Sewornu was remanded into the centre after the court presided over by Mr Malcolm Bedzira  convicted him on his own plea of guilty to the charge of dishonestly misappropriating a goat.

    The court said that Sewornu was remanded into the centre because he is a young man.

    It ordered the investigator of the case to arrest and put before a butcher, who Sewornu claimed he sold several goats to at GHC20.00 each.

    Chief Inspector Sylvia Okan said Sewornu, who resided at Ashaaman a suburb of Tema New Town, was spotted in procession of goat at about 0400 hours near the Chemu lagoon by a taxi driver.

    The prosecution told the court that the taxi driver suspected that Sewornu had stolen the goat and arrested him and handed him over to the police.

    Chief Insp. Okan said that Sewornu told the police during investigations that he found the goat under a tree.

    The prosecution said the owner of the goat was yet to be identified.
