Hohoe, Aug. 3, GNA - A magistrate's court in Hohoe has remanded Akpene Mensah and Korsi Ahiadzese, a fetish priest, from Santrokofi in the Hohoe Municipality, for conspiracy and stealing.
Police Detective Chief Inspector Agyemen Badu told the court that when the complainant was returning from Gbi-Godenu, he spotted a taxi carrying a fridge that he suspected belonged to him.
The prosecution said the complainant went to Gbi-Wegbe taxi rank and met the driver of the taxi.
