- A shocking incident resulted in a suspect smearing himself with faeces
- The suspect was accused of robbery and was on trail
- The court believes he smeared himself with faeces to avoid trail
There was drama at the Ashaiman Circuit court as a man who had been accused of stealing smeared himself in his own feces in order to avoid being tried.
19 year old Rashid Agbo, who is being held on robbery charges, held proceedings for over two hours before the situation was rectified.
It was believe he pulled this stunt in order to appear as if he was deranged.
Mr Gabriel Mate-Teye, who was the presiding judge on the issue was so disgusted by the act that he suspended proceedings until further notice.
Agbo is alleged to have robbed one Mr. Stephen Kodjo Ofori, a production reporter at Tema Steel Works, of a Nokia, Samsung and M-horse smartphones worth GhC 70, GhC130 and Ghc 300 respectively.
The prosecutor, ASP D. Otchere, said the suspect and his accomplice, Michael Agbavi who is at large, on 17th April 2017, at about 20 hours GMT, allegedly attacked the complainant on his way home with his girlfriend.
He said the complainant spotted the accused person a day after the incident and with the help of his brothers arrested and handed him over to the police.
The court remanded Agbo into police custody and adjourned the case to the 4th of May 2017 to allow the police intensify its investigation to arrest other alleged accomplice.
