- Branch manager of Abelempke Marwako has been jailed by a court at Abeka
- Jihad Chabaan was sentenced to 9 months for causing harm and 6 months for assault
The Abeka District Court has sentenced the manager of the Abelemkpe Mawarko branch, Jihad Chabaan to 9 months imprisonment after assaulting a female worker.
It all began when Jihad Chabaan was accused of dipping the face of his employer, Evelyn Boakye into a bowl of blended pepper - a development which saw him arraigned before court under charges of assault and the cause of harm.
High court judge, Magistrate Victoria Ghansah, is said to have rejected moves by the embattled manager's lawyer to present an out of court settlement arguing that such plea never met the standards of justice.
To this effect, the Magistrate declared a concurrent sentence of 6 months in prison for assault as well as 9 months for causing harm.
Meanwhile, Evelyn Boakye, the lady at the centre of the Marwako ‘pepper’ assault is reported to have been admitted at the psychiatric department of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for a clinical and psychological care.
