An unemployed young man and resident of Adabraka in Accra, would spend the next five years in jail after admitting that he bit off a traderís ear during an argument.

Emmanuel Mensah, who engaged the trader, Atoah Emmanuel, in a fight and were separated, ran after him (trader) as the latter was leaving the scene and chop off his left ear with his teeth.

Emmanuel Mensah, believed to be in his early twenties, was put in a court presided over by M.E. Essandoh, charged with causing unlawful harm.

He immediately pleaded guilty to the offence and was consequently convicted on his own plea.

Narrating events leading to the arrest and prosecution of Mensah, the prosecutor, Inspector E.O. Aaye, said on August 12, 2015, the complainant (Atoah Emmanuel) was pushing a truck-load of goods and wanted to enter the Odawna Market when the accused, for an unknown reason, blocked his (Emmanuelís) movement.

The police officer indicated that a misunderstanding ensued resulting in a fight between them and so some onlookers separated them.

Inspector Aaye stated that just as the trader was walking away, Mensah rushed on him, grabbed his ear and chopped it off immediately, causing the trader to bleed profusely.

Narrating further, the inspector claimed that those who separated them arrested Mensah and sent him to the police station.

Furthermore, the police officer said the complainant was given a form to attend hospital for examination and treatment after which his form was duly endorsed by a medical doctor as having been assaulted.
