One of the people arrested for ripping up parts of the astroturf at Drobo-Faaman in the Bono Region has reportedly been jailed for seven years.

Journalist, Saddick Addams, who broke the initial story, reported that a 21-year-old, Gideon Asuako, one of the people who was detained for the act had been imprisoned.

According to Adams, the suspect was charged with three counts of unlawful entry, unlawful damage, and stealing, and put before the Berekum Circuit Court.

Asuako pleaded guilty to all three charges and was sentenced on his own plea.

“The Berekum Circuit Court presided over by His Lordship Osei Kofi Amoako has sentenced a 21-year-old resident of Dwenem in Jaman South Municipality, Gideon Asuako, to 7 years imprisonment for stealing.

“A prison officer friend at Sunyani confirms to me he has just been brought there to begin his sentence,” Adams tweeted.

The alleged thieves were caught in their rooms where they had reportedly used the parts of the turf as carpets.

Adams posted images of the damaged pitch, adding in a subsequent tweet that he had been informed by the Obaahemaa of Faaman that the culprits had been arrested after a search.

“A search party was put together and they found parts of the artificial pitches in the rooms of the thieves used as decoration,” he tweeted.

Lots of people on Twitter found the incident humorous and wondered why anyone would steal astroturfs to decorate their rooms.
