Drama unfolded at the premises of a Kumasi circuit court, when the 2013 winner of TV3’s reality show, Ghana’s Strongest, Sani Mohammed, was nearly attacked by a group of women after he appeared before the court yesterday.
Mohammed was hooted at and chased by the women from the Adugyama Catholic Church, who had thronged the court in support of the Catholic Priests (Rev. Fr. Daniel Affum and Rev. Fr. Anthony Awuah Boateng), who suffered brutal assault by him some weeks ago.
It was the security personnel at the court premises who had to whisk away Mohammed from the wrath of the women.
Mohammed has pleaded not guilty to the charge of causing unlawful damage, harm and assault.
He has been granted bail of GH¢10,000.00 with one surety.
The court, presided over by Mr. Ekow Mensah, adjourned the case to October 19, 2016.
Police Chief Inspector Felix Akowuah, the prosecutor, told the court that Mohammed allegedly assaulted the Priests at Adugyama in the Mankranso District of the Ashanti Region on September 24, 2016.
According to the prosecution, the two priests were admitted to the St. Edward and Mankranso Hospitals for treatment after they were attacked by Mohammed who inflicted machete wounds on their faces and heads.
The prosecution said Rev. Fr. Boateng was said to be traveling from Adugyama to Biemso Number Two in his Toyota Pick-up vehicle when Mohammed was said to have crossed him with his motor bicycle.
Chief Inspector Akowauh noted that Rev. Fr. Boateng was said to have confronted Mohammed over his careless riding but the latter, who was not pleased with the confrontation, chased him (Rev. Fr. Boateng) on his motorbike to the Mission House and hurled stones at the priest injuring him in the eyes.
The prosecution said Mohammed allegedly inflicted machete wounds on the head of Rev. Fr. Affum, who tried to intervene during the assault.
The priests were, however, rushed to the hospital for medical treatment and the police rushed to the scene and arrested Mohammed.
