Six remanded, two granted bail over missing penis incident

Six suspects involved in an assault case related to a shrinking penis at Senya Bereku in the Central Region have been remanded by an Awutu Bereku District Court.

The court, presided over by Naomi Kuntour, also granted bail to a pragyia rider and another suspect.

The accused, Blessings Bonney, Emmanuel Baffoe, Kwame Ahinsan, Richard Quanssah, Gideon Amissah, and Emmanuel Otoo, were initially remanded two months ago after being arrested for assaulting the victim.

During their court appearance on Tuesday, June 11, 2024, the pragyia rider received bail due to health reasons. The identity of the second suspect granted bail and the reason for their release were not disclosed.

The remaining suspects face charges of causing unlawful harm, assault, and conspiracy to commit a crime. They were arrested two months ago after attacking a man visiting his girlfriend at Senya Bereku.

The man had taken a pragyia from Bereku township to his girlfriend’s house after arriving from Accra.

According to police, the pragyia rider reported to his friends that his penis had shrunk after transporting the victim. In response, the rider and his friends assaulted the victim at his girlfriend’s house.

The prosecutor stated that the victim had promised to buy the rider a new pragyia and had given the rider his complimentary card to arrange the purchase.

Despite the victim's pleas of innocence regarding the alleged penis shrinking, the suspects assaulted him until he was unconscious, leading to their arrest. The victim has since been discharged from the hospital. The suspects are scheduled to reappear in court on June 21.
