The three final-year students of the Opoku Ware Senior High School arrested for their alleged involvement in a robbery incident have been granted bail by a Kumasi Circuit Court.

This was after they appeared before the Court for the first time after their arrest on Tuesday, August 16.

They were charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, robbery, and unlawful damage.

His Honor Abdul Razak Musah who presided over the case granted them ¢80,000 bails with 5 sureties each.

The case has been adjourned to September 1.

The students, aged between 17 and 19 years, failed in their attempt to snatch a taxi cab from its driver on Friday night.

The driver picked up the suspects from the Santasi suburb. The passengers sought his services under the pretext of traveling to the Lancaster Kumasi City, formerly Golden Tulip Hotel, in the Nhyiaeso suburb.

But upon reaching the Rattray Park area, the teenagers impressed on the driver to hand over the ignition keys to them or risk being stabbed.

A struggle for the keys ensued between the suspects and the driver. Eventually, the vehicle hit a wall along the Ridge Police Station and the Royal Golf Park Junction.

This attracted onlookers from a nearby club who came to the aid of the taxi driver.

One of the students fled the scene, while two of them were arrested and handed over to the Police.
