Takoradi: Woman Jailed 6 Years For Faking kidnapping

 

 

The Takoradi Harbor Circuit Court presided over by His Honor Kudjo Ampadu has sentenced the woman who faked her kidnapping to 6 six years imprisonment with hard labour. This was after Joana Krah pleaded guilty to two counts, deceiving a public officer and publication of false news and with intent to cause fear and panic. The accused was also sentenced to 2 years imprisonment

 

for publication of false news, both sentencing will run concurrently as proffered by the court. Meanwhile the court placed the custody of the accused three year old son in that of Evangelist Francis Nyambo, the supposed adopted father of Joana Krah too. The judge said owing to prevalence of stunt kidnaping in Takoradi metropolis, the practice should be nibbed in the bud.
