An Accra Circuit Court has sentenced an aluminium fabricator to 12 months imprisonment in hard labour for stabbing another.
Mohammed Salam pleaded not guilty with explanation and a plea of guilty was entered for him.
Salam, in addition, would pay a compensation of GHC25,000.00 to the victim by July 31, the court ordered.
Police Inspector Samuel Ahiabor told the Court, presided over by Mrs Susanna Eduful, that Ebenezer Adjetey Tawiah, the victim, was a machine operator of DBS, a roofing sheet manufacturing company, whilst Madam Lisa Owusu Okyere, the complainant, is the Human Resource Manager of the company.
He said Tawiah and Salam were neighbours at Klagon near Ashaiman, where Tawiah worked. Salam lived opposite the company and on May 5, 2021, the complainant was in her office when she was informed that Salam had stabbed Tawiah.
