Prince Adu, also known as Dracula, a notorious armed robber, who was handed a cumulative 63 years jail sentence by a Ho Circuit Court for three robbery offences, had his jail term increased to 90 years when the court sentenced him to an additional 27 years in hard labour for a similar offence.
The robber, who pleaded guilty to the charge, would have his new sentence run concurrently with the earlier convictions.
Narrating the fact to the court, presided over by Felix Datsomor, Chief Inspector Stephen Atidzon said the complainant (name withheld) is a trader and resident of New Housing, a suburb of Ho.
He said the complainant, who was returning to her house from Ho Barracks New Town, stopped a motorcycle, which had the convict and his accomplice, a juvenile, now committed in a borstal home on board on May 29, last year, at about 2200 hours.
The prosecution said the convict after hearing where the destination of the victim was, asked her to get on board and told her that he and his accomplice would be alighting soon.
Chief Inspector Atidzon said on reaching Donorkordzi cemetery, the complainant opted to alight, seeing that the vehicle was heading into the bush.
Prosecution said the convict also alighted immediately with the complainant and snatched her purse containing an amount of Gh¢100.00 and her itel mobile phone valued at Gh¢500.00.
He said the juvenile then removed a two-edged sharp machete from his bag and gave it to the convict and they started assaulting the complainant.
Prosecution said the rider tried to intervene and pleaded on behalf of the victim but the convict ordered him to move away from the scene immediately, which he did, leaving the victim behind.
Chief Inspector Atidzon said the victim, in an attempt to protect herself against the assault, held the edge of the machete, and the convict pulled it, resulting in a deep cut in her palm.
Prosecution said the convict then ordered the victim to remove her dress and he forcibly had sex with her after which he asked the victim to give him an additional money.
He said the convict, after having sexual intercourse with the complainant, ordered her to sit on one of the tombs whilst they leave, threatening to kill her if she disobeyed the order.
Prosecution said after the convict and his accomplice left, the victim quickly ran to Godokpui Police checkpoint and reported the incident to the Police on duty and they also informed the patrol team.
The juvenile was arrested on a motorcycle but the convict managed to escape, the Prosecution said.
Prosecution said on February 18, this year, the convict was arrested in a different case and was re-arrested on February 27, and pleaded guilty to the offence in his investigation statement, hence the stiffer punishment.

TB Joshua ministry was toxic, he caused damages – Journalist Sandra Ezekwesili – ghanapublisher.com
Radio Presenter, Sandra Ezekwesili has alleged that the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Prophet TB Joshua did a lot of harm than good, irrespective of all the good eulogies being credited to him by people.
Recall that the Prophet passed away in Lagos, Saturday evening, after a programme at his church.
In his last words to Christians, Prophet TB Joshua urged them to watch and pray.
Following his sudden death, the deceased man of God has continued to receive accolades for his reported good deeds from members of his congregation.
However, the Lagos based Radio girl, Sandra, in a post via her Twitter account said the prophet who would usually sell anointing oil and advise his church members against visiting a hospital when they were sick failed to practice what he preached as he reportedly visited the hospital before he died.
She claimed the late Prophet caused a lot of damage and anyone saying anything contrary to that is dishonest.
“TB Joshua was reportedly ill and went to the hospital.
“Did he not teach his numerous followers not to try hospitals and abandon their medication for his holy water and anointing oil?
“His ministry did a lot of damage. Any conversation that doesn’t include that, is dishonest.
“I said what I said. The man was irresponsible as a leader, did not walk in the footsteps of Christ and his ministry was toxic and exploitative.
“Death doesn’t erase that. “I had nothing good to say about him while he lived, I won’t start now because he is dead,” she wrote.
