Woman faces assault charge in Court

20 August 2012 | Crime & Punishment

Kade (E/R), Aug. 19, GNA - The Kade District Magistrates' Court presided over by Mr Abdul Majid Iliasu has granted a bail of GH¢600 with one surety to one Doris Abena Frimpomaa for assault.

Frimpomaa pleaded guilty with explanation and was to appear in court again on August 23, 2012.

Giving the facts of the case, Police Chief Inspector Francis Cobbina said, the complainant was a trader whilst the accused was a palm oil processor and that both of them live in the same area at Adankrono.

On May 8, this year, the accused went to the complainant's house to collect some herbs locally called “nunum”.

The complainant, who was by then in her room went out and met the accused cutting the stem of the herb instead of plucking the leaves.

The complainant asked the accused to rather pluck the “nunum” leaves because it would be difficult for the stem to sprout again since it was the dry season.

The accused then retorted “you do not know how long I have been habouring ill feeling against you for your barbaric acts towards Lydia in the house”.

The complainant in an attempt to find out what she had done wrong was attacked by the accused, who held the complainants hair and dragged her on the ground and forcibly removed her braided hair.

The complainant's daughter, Jennifer who could not stand the sight of her mother being harmed quickly raised an alarm, which attracted witnesses to the scene to rescue her.

The complainant sustained multiple injuries all over her body and the incident was reported to the police.

The accused was later arrested and after investigations, charged with the offense.
