Carpenter jailed four years for biting off driver’s right ear



An Adentan Circuit Court has sentenced a 42-year-old carpenter to four years imprisonment for biting off the right ear of a commercial driver during a kerfuffle at Addoteiman in Accra.

Maxwell Senyo, charged with causing harm, pleaded guilty with an explanation.

The court presided over by Mrs Sedinam Awo Balokah after listening to his reason, convicted Senyo on his plea.

Inspector Eric Ransford Abban, the prosecutor, said the complainant, Anku Stephen, resides at Addoteiman. The accused person also lived in the same area.

The prosecution said on May 7, 2023, at about 2000 hours, the complainant and his girlfriend sat under a tree, near Senyo’s wooden structure.

It said whilst sitting there, Senyo quizzed the complainant and his girlfriend as to whether they were looking for him.

The prosecution said the complainant replied in the negative.

Senyo then asked the complainant and his girlfriend to leave the place, or he (Senyo) would report to his father that he (the complainant) was a thief.

This, the prosecution said, led to a confrontation between Senyo and the complainant.

Senyo then broke off a branch of the tree and swiped the complainant.

The prosecution said in the ensuing scuffle, the complainant and Senyo both fell on the ground and Senyo sustained injuries on his cheeks.

It said Senyo held the complainant’s head and bit off his right ear.

The prosecution said police investigation revealed that Senyo bit off the complainant’s ear because “he was sitting close to his wooden structure.”

It said Senyo admitted the offence during interrogation.
