A Circuit Court in Sunyani has remanded a farmer, aged 26, into prison custody for stealing a goat worth GHC600.00 at Wawasua, in the Sunyani West Municipality of the Bono Region.
Kofi Kuol-Tunati, also known as Atta, the accused, was charged with stealing and causing unlawful damage to two persons.
He admitted the charge of stealing, but pleaded not guilty to causing unlawful damages and the Court presided by Mr. Sylvester Nii Okine Ablorh remanded him accordingly, to reappear in Court on Thursday, October 21 this year.
Prosecuting, Police Inspector Emmanuel Sampson, told the Court that in early September, the complainant, Abubakari Sadiq Fuseini, a land surveyor engaged the accused to dig a toilet pit in his farm where he reared livestock.
He said on Friday, September 17, his herdsman took the goat to the bush for grazing, saying when the accused realised the herdsman was away, he quickly went and untied the goat and went to hide it in a cocoa farm, which was 300 metres away from the complaint’s farm.
