Theft robbery

Do You Remember Ataa Ayi? He Is Now A Born Again And Pastor In Prison.

Without a doubt, the most popular armed robber in Ghana is Raymond Ayittey popularly known as Ataa Ayi. Ataa Ayi was arrested in February 2005 following a hint from his own niece for an unconnected crime. The police found out he was the most wanted armed robber after his arrest.

In the same year (2005), Ataa Ayi was sentenced to 160 years in prison with hard labor on the charges of robbery and a plot to rob by Supreme Court Judge, Justice Baffoe-Bonnie.

A few years after his imprisonment, Ataa Ayi found God. He is now devoted born again Christian. Ataa Ayi is now evangelist at the Ankaful Maximum security prisons in Cape Coast, Central Region where he is serving his sentence.

The man whose name sends fear down the spine of most Ghanaians is also the national leader of prisoners in the country. He champions the good welfare of prisoners and speaks for them.

Recently, Crime Check TV visited the Ankaful Maximum security prisons in Cape Coast and shared a picture taken with Ataa Ayi.

Although Ataa Ayi has 144 years more to spend in prison, he looked so happy with hope for the future. Sharing the photo on their Facebook page, Crime Check TV wrote:

With one hundred and forty-four years more to complete his prison sentence, my good friend, Ataa Ayi still has cause to smile. No matter the weight of your economic bondage, don’t forget you have your FREEDOM. Just a little more push could turn your fortunes around because there aren’t physical walls around you. Never lose hope. Fight on. Life is a struggle!
