Driver Sentenced For Threatening To Kill Police Officer

A 20-year-old driver who threatened to kill two police officers at Afari, near Nkawie in the Atwima-Mwabiagya South Municipality, has been sentenced to one year jail term by the Nkawie Circuit Court.

Kwame Frimpong, alias “Danger” is
said to have threatened to kill the Nkawie District Police Commander and a
community police personnel at Afari, if they continued to pursue and arrest him
for various offences committed.

He pleaded not guilty but was
convicted after the trial by the Court presided over by Mr Michael Johnson
Abbey.

Police Inspector Ruth Gborson
told the court that the convict, who was involved in several cases had bolted
and announcements were made at information centres at Afari and its environs
for the people to volunteer information for his arrest.

He said the convict from his
hideout threatened to kill the district commander and the community police
personnel if they continued to pursue him.

Inspector Gborson said after the
threat the convict went into hiding at Nkasaeim, near Goaso, in the Ahafo
Region.

The police arrested him upon a tip-off and brought him before the court.
