Accra Dec. 11, GNA – Abdulaziz Sulemana, a Labourer on Monday appeared before an Accra Circuit Court for allegedly inflicting knife wounds on two persons who compelled him to apologize for spitting on a lady.

The court presided over by Mr Emmanuel Essandoh remanded Sulemana and he is to reappear on December 22.
The court has however issued a bench warrant for the arrest of seven accomplices who are at large.
Prosecuting Chief Inspector Francis Tarsan said the complainants Stanley Abbey and Richmond Abbey were musician and trader respectively. The two complainants resided at James Town, Accra.
Chief Inspector Tarsan said Sulemana also resided at James Town Beach. On November 24, this year, Sulemana went to a drinking spot at James Town Beach. At the Beach a misunderstanding ensued between Sulemana and one Nana Aba.
Prosecution said Sulemana allegedly spat on Nana Aba. Three days afterwards, the two complainants and one Peter Grahl allegedly compelled Sulemana to apologize to Nana Aba.
Sulemana reported the incident to someone known only as “E” and later asked the complainants and Grahl, to meet “E” over the issues.
Prosecution said on their way for the said meeting the complainants were attacked at Old Slaughter House at James Town by Sulemana and seven other butchers with knives.
As a result, prosecution said Richmond had a deep cut on the eye brow whilst Stanley was stabbed in the buttocks.
Prosecution said Richmond whose left eye was smashed with a stone was rushed to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital where his eye was operated on, whilst Stanley was also treated.
