Detailing the incident, Ayisala disclosed that the intruder, who was heavily built, held his throat and nearly strangled him to death.

Ayisala said he struck a shot with a catapult to save himself but it inadvertently hit the man's eye.

He was later arrested and taken to court for prosecution but he couldn't afford to hire the services of a lawyer.

The judge who presided over the case gave Ayisala the option of either paying a fine of GHC6,200 to the state and GHC300 to the intruder or serving eight-years in prison.

The financially incapacitated watchman, who was earning just GHC150 at the time couldn't pay to save his life from jail, and his boss, who he had served over the years did not settle the fine for him either.
