A 35-year-old farmer, Peter Adzraku, has been sentenced to a fine of GH¢1,200 by a Bibiani circuit court for assaulting his ex-fiancée.

Adzraku, who pleaded guilty, would serve six months in prison if he fails to pay the fine.

Detective Chief Inspector Alex Asamoah told the court, presided over by Mr Emmanuel Ankamah that, the complainant, Akosua Ackah, 29, a also farmer, resides at Basengle in the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai district, while the accused resides at Affulkrom, also in the district.

Detective Chief Inspector Asamoah said on December 7, 2008, at about 1900 hours, Basengle visited the house of the complainant who was his ex-fiancée and inquired about her whereabouts.
