Prophet Nkansah Faces Contempt Charges

Drama unfolded at the courts when a lady walked to some police officers escorting Prophet Daniel Nkansah, flag bearer of the New Vision Party to cells, and told them he was needed at an Accra High Court. The lady, who gave her name as Fati Issah, showed journalists a bench warrant ordering the arrest of Prophet Nkansah at the High Court which had cited him for contempt. The warrant was issued on April 7, but could not be served on Prophet Nkansah until Monday, June 2. Prophet Nkansah had sued Hajia Sikiratu Obe over a parcel of land at Atico and a High Court had ruled in favour of Hajia Obe in 2012. Hajia Obe, therefore, went into execution on the parcel of land by fixing padlocks on shops built on the said land. Prophet Nkansah managed to organise some men who also vandalized the padlocks. When the matter was reported to the Police and the court, Prophet Nkansah was cited for contempt. Prophet Nkansah, his son Daniel Boahene Nkansah Junior, and 10 others, are said to have robbed five workers of XY Canis Majoris Company Limited, and taken away a sunny video camera, mobile phones, computers, cheque books, certificates, a driverís license and GH₡1,000.00. They have pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit crime, and five counts of robbery. Nkansah Junior is, however, on bail, while his father and 10 others are on remand and will re-appear on June 9.
