A 42-year-old man, Kweku Menaba was on Tuesday remanded in custody by a circuit court at Cape Coast for allegedly attempting to steal goats and sheep at Yamoransa. Menaba pleaded not guilty and is to be re-arraigned on Friday March 14. Prosecuting, Chief Inspector Hope Azasoo said on March 5, 2008, at about 0100 hours, Menaba and a friend, Kojo, who is deceased, went to Yamoransa with the aim of stealing goats and sheep, but luck ran out on them, when Kojo was shot by a hunter, who saw them trying to steal the animals. He also alleged that Menaba, managed to bring Kojo to his residence at Nkanfoa, a suburb of Cape Coast, where he died a few minutes later. He said the police, who had earlier been tipped off that a man bleeding profusely had been seen being carried by another into a kiosk at Nkanfoa, went to the scene, where they found Menaba and the father of the deceased standing over the body. The two were arrested, but Kojoâ€™s father was released after investigations proved he was not related to the death.
