Landguards Chop Off Man's Ear

From left: Obeng, Rubin and Evans A man believed to be in his mid thirties, Frederick Frimpong, has been brutally battered by three men suspected to be landguards.

The three, Yaw Obeng, driver, Evans Kwadwo Appiah and Rubin Adenyo, both masons, allegedly attacked the complainant on February 7, 2009 at about 11pm with machetes and other offensive weapons and ended up severing his left ear.

Narrating the story to DAILY GUIDE , the Odorkor District Police Commander, DSP Saddique Osei said on that night, the three and others at large were fighting among themselves wielding knives, machetes and other offensive weapons, at the Allied Filling Station at Sowutuom.

He indicated that the reason for the fight was not readily known however the complainant and one Kwaku James who were on board a 207 Benz bus and branched to the filling station to buy fuel tried to separate the three and their opponents.

The young men then vented their anger on Frederick and inflicted several machete wounds on him resulting in the loss of his left ear.  

Frederick as well lost his Nokia mobile phone and some amount of money in the process.

A patrol team called to the scene managed to arrest Obeng and Appiah whilst the others escaped.

The third accused person, Rubin Adenyo, who incidentally was on the wanted list of the police for causing harm to one complainant at Sowutuom was arrested two days later.

The three were arraigned before court for causing unlawful harm.
