It has emerged that Gilbert Osabutey aka Obolo, a shop supervisor at the Koala Shopping Centre in Accra, allegedly warned the two persons who trailed and robbed Lydia Horsu, the marketing staff of the company, not to kill her.

According to the investigator, Detective Chief Inspector Edward Adjei Odame, the accused, who relayed information to the two suspected robbers – Stanley Obaliko aka Mohammed Sulemana and Oko Quarcoe – on phone, specifically warned them against any bloodshed.

He said on January 9 at about 6am, Obolo came to work to await the arrival of Lydia who was to collect invoices (not money).

In the view of the case investigator, Lydia changed her mind not to pick any money from the shop but rather the invoices.

D/Ch/Insp. Odame noted that immediately Lydia left the shop, Obolo described the victim to his men, culminating in the attack.

The senior police officer, who was the fourth prosecution witness in the hearing of the case, stated that during his arrest, Michael Edoe Ahiataku, another accomplice, said it was Obolo who hatched the idea of robbing Koala.

Led in evidence by Chief Superintendent Duuti Tuaruka, D/Ch/Insp. Odame told the court presided over by Aboagye Tandoh, that during his arrest, Sulemana mentioned Edoe as the one who contracted them to rob the victim.

He said the accused person, upon their respective arrests, mentioned each other as their accomplices.

One Frederick Sedro Kwame aka Fred, a private security guard, is also in the dock with the four others over charges of conspiracy to rob and robbery.

Sitting continues on May 3.

Sulemana and Okoe are also standing trial for intentionally and unlawfully causing grievous harm to Lydia.

The five men reportedly trailed and robbed Lydia at about 8am on January 9, this year of her Nokia phone worth GH¢800, a black ladies’ bag valued at GH¢200, a Koala ID card, invoices and GH¢100.

Sulemana is facing an additional charge of possessing one automatic MAB foreign pistol No. PA151674189, six 9mm ammunition and five empty cartridges.

Sulemana and Okoe are also standing trial for intentionally and unlawfully causing grievous harm to Lydia.
