Two Nigerians, Bright Okwara and Ferdinand Obi, have been sentenced to 40 years imprisonment with hard labour for armed r@bbery in the Central Region of Ghana.

His Lordship Ebenezer Osei of the Kasoa Ofaakor Circuit Court handed them the sentence on Monday, October 3, after they were found guilty of r@bbing a mobile money vendor in broad daylight on Tuesday, May 17, 2022.

The two Nigerians were on motorbikes, monitoring the activities of the victim after he withdrew the money from the bank, the court heard.
