Former employee of Pizzaman signs bond for stealing cooking oil


A 25-year-old former Pizzaman/Chickenman employee who stole a gallon of Frytol Cooking Oil worth at GH600 from the Pizzaman/Chickenman Company Limited has been charged in an Accra Circuit Court.

Kwame Asante pled guilty to theft after being charged with it.


As a result, the Court presided over by Mrs Susana Eduful ordered the accused to sign a bond of good behavior for six months and serve three months in jail in default.

According to Police Chief Inspector Samuel Ahiabor, the complainant, Mr Chris Nana Boayke, is one of the Managers of the Pizzaman/Chickenman Company Limited.

According to the prosecution, the Company’s management recently detected an unusual decline in stored commodities, such as liters of cooking oil, frozen chicken, and other items, which much exceeded  production output.

Given the circumstances, the company installed CCTV cameras to watch the actions of its employees and to prevent the occurrence.

According to the prosecution, on November 14, 2023, at 0500 hours, the accused entered into the Company’s storeroom and stole a gallon of Frytol cooking oil worth GH600.

According to the complaint, the complainant arrived at work and noticed the accused individual take away a gallon of cooking oil without authorization while watching CCTV of the previous day’s operations.

According to the prosecution, a complaint was filed with the police, and the accused was arrested before being released on Police inquiry bail for further investigation.

It stated that the Spintex branch of the Company was broken into by one of the Company’s employees while an inquiry was underway.

The prosecution said, “preliminary investigation conducted in the latter incident reasonably suggested that the accused person committed the crime based on the CCTV footage analysis.”

According to the report, the accused individual was invited to report to the Police and participate in the investigation, but he declined and fled the area.

According to the prosecution, the accused was on board a bus traveling to Kumasi when he was tracked down and detained on December 20, 2023 at the KNUST crossroads near Kumasi.
