Man jailed for breaking into Association International School

A 27-year-old unemployed man has been sentenced to a four-year prison term by a Circuit Court in Accra for unlawfully entering an office at the Association International School Airport in Accra.

Michael Awittor and his partners reportedly absconded with laptops along with their accessories, calculators, and power banks from the premises.

Presided over by Ms. Afia Owusua Appiah, the court handed down the sentence to Awittor after he admitted his guilt to the charges of aiding and abetting the commission of a crime, specifically theft.

Awittor’s accomplices, Abdul Wahab Issahaku, a 50-year-old scrap dealer, and Joseph Edoho, a 50-year-old unemployed individual, were granted bail in the amount of GHC120,000 each, with three sureties for each person, one of whom needs to provide justification.
