Court remands supervisor over alleged stabbing incident

A supervisor has been remanded into police custody by the Three on allegations of stabbing a businessman with a broken bottle and a screwdriver. Samuel Nii Duodoo, the accused, denied causing harm to Mr. Isaac Kwadwo Asare and is scheduled to appear in court again on May 7, 2024.

According to Police Chief Inspector Christine Bansah, who presented the facts to the court presided over by Mrs. Susanna Eduful, the incident stemmed from a previous misunderstanding between the complainant and the accused over the rental of an apartment. Duodoo allegedly threatened Asare during this dispute.

The altercation escalated on April 5, 2024, when the accused assaulted the complainant while he was relaxing in a nearby house. Despite being separated by onlookers, Duodoo reportedly pursued Asare later that day when he was at a drinking spot. Without provocation, Duodoo allegedly attacked Asare, breaking a beer bottle and inflicting multiple wounds before stabbing him with a screwdriver in the stomach.

As a result of the injuries sustained, Asare bled profusely and was rushed to the James Town Police Station, where he received a Police Medical report form for further treatment at a hospital. Duodoo was subsequently arrested by bystanders and handed over to the James Town Police for further investigation.

Chief Inspector Bansah disclosed that Duodoo confessed to the offense during police interrogation. Following the completion of the investigation, the accused was arraigned before the court.
