Video: 16-year-old JHS graduate jailed 25 years for stealing his GH¢10 shares sad story

16-year-old JHS graduate jailed 25 years for stealing his GH¢10 shares sad story

Abdallah Mohammed during an interview on Accra-based Adom FM said that he was just 16 years old when a man called Moro Haruna met him at Aboabo station in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi, and accused him of stealing his GH¢10.00 and a bunch of keys.

According to him, he was not given a chance to explain himself as the mob beat him up and later sent him to the Zongo Police Station.

Abdallah, now 27 years said that he served 11 years and 2 months out of the 25 years and has been released after they found out that, he was the wrong person

“I was remanded for 9 days till I appeared before the court; was remanded and later jailed 25 years,” he told Corruption Watch (CW), a segment on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem on Friday.

Corruption Watch (CW) gathered that the family of Abdallah was not informed about the arrest and prosecution of the then underage boy, which was a blatant violation of the juvenile criminal justice law, which required the presence of the parents or guardians of the juvenile before questioning.

Thankfully, with the help of Civil Society Organisations and Human Rights Organisations, the young man has regained his freedom from the prison but he remains traumatized as the entire event leading to his imprisonment keeps popping up in his mind
