The Amasaman Circuit Court has granted a GH¢30,000.00 bail with two sureties to a trader who allegedly bit off part of her neighbour’s index finger.

Constancia Seklorshie pleaded not guilty to causing harm to Madam Josephine Danquah. She is to make her next appearance on July 22, 2024.

Prosecuting, Police Chief Inspector Salifu Nashiru told the court, presided over by Enid Marful-Sau, that Madam Danquah lived with her husband, James Asamoah, while the accused person, Seklorshie, also lived with her husband, Kennedy Dzramado; both couples resided at Ofankor Poultry Farm.

He said on June 16, 2021, Madam Danquah and Asamoah reported a case of causing harm to the Achimota Mile 7 Police, which led to the arrest of Seklorshie. Chief Inspector Nashiru stated that during interrogation, it was revealed that Seklorshie had also lodged an assault case against the complainant with the Ofankor Police.

Further investigations, the prosecutor said, revealed that earlier, the couples had quarreled, and along the line, Seklorshie poured dirty soapy water on Madam Danquah’s husband, which led to a fight between the two women, Madam Danquah and Seklorshie.

The court heard that, however, Madam Danquah bit Seklorshie’s right thumb, and Seklorshie retaliated by biting off and chewing Madam Danquah’s left index finger.

The court was told that at the end of the investigations, Seklorshie was charged and put before the court.
