TWO men have been put before the court in Koforidua for fighting over a pregnancy, leading to a stab.
The two accused persons are Mawuli Debrah, 42, a spinner, and Tahiru Ahmed, 33, a driver.
Presenting the facts of the case before a Koforidua Circuit Court, Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Bernard Annor, explained that the two accused persons are both residents of Koforidua-Nsukwao in the Eastern Region.
He said Debrah accused Ahmed of impregnating his sister but failed to accept responsibility which caused some form of medical implications for his sister.
The situation created enmity between the two accused persons which resulted in a fierce fight.
He said later in the evening around 10:00 p.m., that fateful day, the accused persons again met and engaged in another fight in which Tahiru Ahmed sustained a deep scissors stab in his chest.
Both reported the case to the police and medical forms were issued to the two to attend hospital for medical treatment, where Ahmed underwent a surgery at the Koforidua regional hospital.
After investigations, the two accused persons were charged with disturbing public peace while Mawuli Debrah was hit with an additional charge of causing harm.
The Koforidua Circuit Court fined Debrah GH₵1,200, and added that in the event that he defaults, he will serve a year prison sentence on count one while Ahmed was cautioned and discharged.
However, Mawuli is expected to reappear before the court for trial on the charge of causing harm.
