An unemployed man who tried to steal a motorbike parked outside a shop in Pokuase in the Greater Accra region has been brought before an Accra Circuit Court.
Fuseini Seidu, charged with attempted robbery, pleaded not guilty.
The Court presided over by Mrs. Afia Owusua Appiah admitted Seidu to a bond of GHS 150,000 with two bonds to show.
Seidu is set to reappear on September 26.
Chief Inspector of Police Samuel Ahiabor said the complainant Eli Sodoli, a beautician residing in Pokuasi, while the accused Fuseini Seidu, an unemployed person, remained in Ashaiman.
Chief Inspector Ahiabor said that on May 7, 2022, at around 5:30 a.m., the Complainant parked his black Sanya motorbike with registration number M-20-GR 405, worth GHS 7,000.00 past a bakery in Pokuase and walked into buy some bread.
The prosecution said Seidu went to sit on the motorcycle trying to push it away as if it belonged to him and he ran out of fuel.
The prosecutor said that during the proceedings, a Pokuasi rush hour police patrol team suspected Seidu and had him arrested, but he claimed ownership of the motorcycle.
Shortly after, the prosecution said, the plaintiff was alerted to the incident and he exited the store, removed his ignition key from his pocket and started the motorcycle.
The accused who did not have the ignition key was sent to Pokuasi Police Station for investigation.
The motorcycle was returned to the plaintiff after photographs were taken for evidentiary purposes.
