University students sentenced to death for murdering pastor

Two University students identified as Dogyi Kwame and Obio Akwasi, have been sentenced to death for murdering a Pastor in a robbery attack 10 months ago in Ghana.

The University students who are cousins, both aged 21 and students of Tamale Technical University, were handed the death sentence by Tamale High Court in the Northern region. The convicts who stole the Pastor’s Toyota Highlander vehicle before fleeing, attacked and killed 65-year-old Ebenezer Ocran, head pastor of End Time Bible Believers Fellowship, Tamale, at his residence in Kumbuyili.

They were however arrested in November 2017, after they forced themselves into the room of the deceased at about 12noon on November 10 2017, and killed him by stabbing him in the chest with a knife and also fractured his skull with a pestle.

The University students gave the car they stole to a sprayer at the Tamale Industrial Area, to sell at GHS10,000. During the trial, the prosecution called nine witnesses, while the convicts called no witnesses, and at the end of it all the jury returned a verdict of guilty of conspiracy to commit crime
