“Looking at the factors the court didn’t want to give him a non-custodian sentence but rather send a signal out there to deter others. So, he was given a fine of 200 penalty unites for the second charge which is the resisting arrest and for the first charge to sign a bond of good behaviour and in default three months in prison”.

He further said, Awal’s remorse after the incident and pleas from the Black Stars players and coach also factored in the verdict.
