A trader who allegedly bit the upper left ear of another trader was granted bail by an Accra Circuit Court in the sum of a GH¢30,000.00 with two sureties.
One of the sureties had to be gainfully employed.
Felix Ayenkoligo, who pleaded not guilty, has denied causing harm to David Azure.
He is to make his next appearance on June 11.
Police Chief Inspector Emmanuel Haligah told the Court presided over by Mrs Jane Harriett Akweley Quaye that both Azure and Ayenkoligo are traders living at the Texpo Market, Baatsona on the Spintex Road, Accra.
On August 29, 2016, the accused, together with another witness in the case, contributed money to cook some food.
Azure, however, refused to contribute but later joined them to eat but Ayenkoligo prevented him.
The Prosecution said on the blind side of Ayenkoligo, Azure went to take some of the food and this resulted in a fight between the two.
Chief Inspector Haligah said, Ayenkoligo, in the melee, bit off the upper part of Azure’s left ear.
A report was made with the police and it led to the arrest of Ayenkoligo whilst a medical report form was issued to the Azure to attend hospital.
He said Ayenkoligo admitted the offence in his caution statement and after further investigations, he was arraigned.
