April 9, 2014 – 2 Nigerians Jailed For 20 Years In Ghana For Stealing

Two Nigerians identified as Obilo Solomon Chigozie and Nande Okafor have been sentenced to a total of 20 years imprisonment with hard labour by a Ghanaian circuit court for stealing GH25,000.

The money belonged to a businessman at Tamso, a suburb of Tarkwa, in the Western Region.

Obilo and Nande pleaded guilty, according to a report by Ghana News Agency.

Prosecuting Police Chief Inspector Edward Paddy told the court in Tarkwa presided over by Mr Samuel Obeng Diawuo that the convicts claimed to be phone hawkers in Accra and residents at Kokomelmle.

He said at about 1100 hours on March 19, the victim John Ardiabah parked his Peugeot saloon car in front of the cluster of stores near the Tarkwa post office and left the money in the vehicle

Obilo walked to the drivers side of the car, unlocked the front door with a key and entered and removed the cash which was wrapped in a black polythene bag and walked off.Prison symbol

Inspector Paddy said as soon as Obilo came out of the car Nande suddenly appeared by his side with a motor bike and he jumped on it to escape.

He said a lotto receiver who was observing the scenario raised the alarm, which attracted other store owners, who attacked the suspects and pushed them onto the ground, before they could get away with the money.

Inspector Paddy said the victims money was retrieved from the convicts and they were handed over to the police.

The Prosecutor said during investigations, Obilo and Nande denied the offence and told the police that they arrived in Tarkwa on the day of the crime from Accra on a motor bike to look for business opportunities.

He said after investigations they were charged with the offence.

    I wonder why some Nigerians will choose to tarnish the country’s image. Outside the shores at that. They deserve the punishment. It should serve as lesson to others.

    Cheei!! Why are these ****s so criminal minded to a fault. They now export their criminal activities across the boaders into neighbouring countries and beyond.? Igbos are an ethnic tribe with criminal geaneology deeply rooted in their blood. Former President of Senegal, Abdulai Wade once said ECOWAS economic bloc can only be successful without Nigeria, what he saw few years back for advocating ECOWAS without Nigeria is now manifesting in the manner our **** brothers from Eastern Nigeria are migrating to Ghana and everywhere in West Africa engaging in criminal activities without letting. Igbos are spread over every village and cities in Ghana, hosts of whom are criminals involved in credit card clonning, drug couriers, illlegal passport acquisitions, car jacking, highways robbery etc. When will the destructions of the image of Nigeria abate internationally from these ***** criminal gangs.,? Abdulai Wade may not be totally wrong afterall; as its now been seen in the mass invasions of jobless **** youth virtually across the entire West African sub-region engaged in very disgraceful criminal activities.

    Most of you criminal minded Eastern Nigeria ****s people are hiding behind ‘Country no good, Country no good’ farse to perpetrate criminal activities everywhere, Can you these ****s criminals tell which country is good and where is that country that fully and totally is self sufficient in everything,? Even those countries you claim are better you still go there and engage in crime, with this attitude of the ****s; is it not right to say the average Igbo youth is first born a criminal and or grow up with criminal orientations.? Why is only the **** people amongst the over 300 ethnic Nigerian tribes that feel the ‘Country no good’ phenominon and as such constitute the largest numbers of criminals both in Nigeria and abroad. Why has the **** tribe become the face of Nigerian trademark criminal activities both in Nigeria and the world at large. The Igbo race claim they are descendants of Israelites but the history of the Jews nowhere bore criminality, so what is wrong with the **** race.???
