Forty three year old, Noah Abe, will spend five years in jail for beating up police officers on duty.

Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Yahaya Salifu, Ashaiman Divisional Police Command, told the Ashaiman Circuit Court that, on the 29 May 2017, the accused, Naoh Abe, was seen driving carelessly.

According to the prosecuting officer, a police officer on duty upon seeing the accused break traffic regulations, ordered him to stop.

“Deputy Superintendent of Police(DSP) Isaac Kojo Forson,  Ashaiman Divisional Motor Transport and Traffic Department (MTTD), entered the car and ordered the accused to drive to the MTTD office at Ashaiman,” he said.

Chief Inspector Salifu said the accused deliberately drove past the junction the police officer ordered him to use.

According to the prosecuting officer, the police officer upon sensing danger called for reenforcement.

He noted that, the reenforcement team stopped the accused at Gbetsile Junction near Michel camp and ordered him out of the car, an order the accused refused.

“The accused later got down from the car with a club in hand, hitting the police officer and in the process, injured another officer, Inspector Kingsley Viduku, in the head. He was then arrested and arranged before the court,” he said.

He was subsequently convicted on five counts including, causing harm contrary to section 69 act 26/60, threat of death contrary to section 75 act 29/60, resisting arrest contrary to section 226 act 29/60.

The court presided over by Mr.Gabriel Mate –  Teye, said the verdict would serve as a deterrent to those fond of breaking traffic regulations and disrespecting  law enforcement officers.
