The Prosecution said the driver quickly informed Mr Adofo Dwamana, the Constituency Chairman, who intend reported the incident to the police.
He said the vehicle was not seen again until on after the December 7 election, when the Chairman saw Yahaya driving it.
He again reported it to the police.
The prosecution said the police invited Yahaya to the Divisional Police Headquarters, where he was ordered by the police to release the vehicle to the Chairman but he refused.
He said the police later managed and arrest him and arraigned him before the court and charged with the offence.
