Allister John, the prime suspect in the killing of the 35-year-old businesswoman at Sokoban, has been convicted on two counts of stealing from Gloria Morrison, another businesswoman, and resident of Bantama within the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly of the Ashanti Region.
In a case before the Asokwa Circuit Court, he was charged with stealing a mobile phone worth four thousand Ghana cedis and stealing a cash amount of GH¢167,666 from the complainant.
According to the police, Allister John worked with the complainant at a Bantama hotel as a receptionist in 2022 but left and later returned to the facility in July 2023.
Upon being re-employed at the hotel, the complainant asked Allister John to help adjust her phone’s settings, but he fled with the phone.
He later accessed the phone and withdrew the GH¢167,666 from the complainant’s bank account using the mobile app.
The judgment for the two counts will be read at the Asokwa District Court on Friday, October 6, 2023.
