Rashida Abudu, 18, has been remanded into prison custody by a Kumasi Circuit Court for cutting the face of 14-year-old Shaida Salifu with a razor blade during a fight.

Rashida pleaded guilty with explanation to causing harm but her explanation was not taken and will be brought back to the court on April 10 for sentence.

Police Chief Inspector Comfort Baffour-Kyei said the two girls resided in a kiosk at Kronum in Kumasi.

On March 13, an argument ensued between them culminating in a fight but some onlookers intervened to stop the two.

Rashida, who was not satisfied, bought a razor blade and used it to cut across the right cheek and forehead of Shaida several times.

Shaida was taken to the hospital and Rashida was handed over to the police.
