Farmer sprinkles human excreta on rice seller and customers


Prosper Adjatey, a 42-year-old farmer has appeared before court for allegedly sprinkling human excreta on a food seller and her customers at Gbi-Atabu near Hohoe.

Adjatey pleaded not guilty to offensive conduct and breach of the peace and would return to the court presided over by Mr Edward Apenkwa on March 10 this year.

Mr Emmanuel Kpodo prosecuting told the Court that Adjatey had asked Madam Janet Awido the food seller to stop selling her cooked rice and stew at the particular spot claiming the place was his property.

He said about 1900 hours on January 10 this year Adjatey confronted Madam Awido then busily serving her customers for flouting his orders and after some time he left.

Mr Kpodo said Adjatey returned 20 minutes later carrying a Milo tin containing human excreta and began spraying its contents on the customers and wares with Awido being the worst affected.

He said Adjatey turned himself over to the police when the people in the community began searching for him but denied committing the offence in his statement to the police.
