- Accused admits biting the ear off but pleads not guilty to the charge of causing harm
- The court will hear the case again on June 11.
A trader is in court for allegedly biting off the upper left ear of another trader. On Friday in an Accra Circuit Court, the accused was granted bail to the tune of GH¢30,000.00 with two sureties.
The accused, identified as Felix Ayenkoligo, pleaded not guilty to the charge. He is to reappear in court on June 11.
Narrating the incident, Police Chief Inspector Emmanuel Haligah, said the accused and the victim, David Zure, were both traders living at the Texpo Market Baatsonaa. The court presided over by Mrs Jane Harriett Akweley Quaye heard that the accused along with a witness cooked food together on August 29, 2016.
Azure, who had refused to contribute to the cooking, wanted to eat some of it. Ayenkoligo prevented him.
However, later when the matter had settled, the victim dodged the accused to go and get some of the food which he, Azure, ate. This did not go down well with Ayenkoligo and the two had a fight.
According to the chief inspector, the fight saw the accused biting off the upper part of Azure's left ear. A report was made to the police and Azure was given a police permit to go to a hospital.
In the preliminary investigation, Ayenkoligo admitted the offence after which he was arraigned before court.
