Vincent Bosso is said to have stolen the money from the Police counter when he was being prepared for court Wednesday morning, TV3’s Godfred Tanam reported.
The sources say Bosso denied taking the money but when they arrived in the courtroom, a search on him revealed the money which was hidden in his pocket. He later claimed it was given to him by someone but could not say exactly who.
He later confessed in court to the investigator handling the murder case that he indeed took the money from the Police counter. This when they were waiting for the presideing judge to resume his seat for sitting to begin, the sources told our correspondent in court.
It is unclear whether he would be charged with stealing, as the officers are yet to investigate that case.
Vincent Bosso, a mobile phone housing dealer, is standing trial for assisting Daniel Asiedu, the first accused person in the case, in the alleged murder of the Joseph Boakye Dankwa Adu.
Bosso has subsequently been charged with conspiracy to commit crime.
Today is his second appearance in court after his arrest.
It is the prosecution’s case that Bosso and Asiedu agreed to go to the MP’s house together and assisted Asiedu to pass through the iron bars on top of the deceased house.
According to the prosecution, he jumped into the house with Asiedu and stood watch in front of the house for Asiedu as he allegedly committed the offence
“While keeping watch, he saw some people coming towards the house. He, therefore, fled to avoid being noticed,’’ the prosecution has told the court.
