Sekondi-Takoradi: I can’t remember my real name – Suspected Thief

By on

There was a drama amidst uncontrollable laughter at Fijai, a suburb of Sekondi/Takoradi when a suspected thief who was arrested in the community told those who arrested him that he had forgotten his real name.

The suspect, in his early 20s, was arrested on Saturday dawn around 4am with items including footwears, bags, crates of eggs among others.

Bismark Koomson who is the Unit Committee Chairman of the community told Connect FM’s OMANBAPA morning show host, Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson the suspect was arrested when he was going for the booty he had hidden in an uncompleted building.

“He had succeeded to pile up some items including personal effects believed to have been stolen from a boutique and hid in the uncompleted building and was coming for them but a resident who had seen the items and become suspicious laid ambush and arrested him around 4am,” the unit committee chairman explained.

When the suspect was asked to mention his name, he said he couldn’t he recall but only knows his nickname “Shaggy” causing onlookers to burst into uncontrollable laughter.

He has since been handed over to the Sekondi Police together with the stolen items
