A District Magistrate’s court at Half Assini in the Western Region, has remanded Madam Hanna Kodwo in prison custody for inflicting cutlass wound on the head of a man.

The plea of Madam Hanna Kodwo, a petty trader from Mankessim in the Central Region, was not taken and she would re-appear at court on November 25.

Police Chief Inspector Moses Kofie told the court presided over by Mr Hans Kofi Kpogo that on October 23, the suspect and two other women went to a the shrine of herbalist at Half Assini to seek assistance to have babies.

Chief Insp Kofie said while the women were at the shrine, Kwame Gyan, a brother of the herbalist believed to a Christian, came to the place.

The court heard that Gyan wished the women good luck in their attempt to seek help from the shrine but asked them to also pray to God to enable them to accomplish their mission.

Chief Insp. Kofie said the women did not take Gyan’s comment likely and they lodged a complaint with Madam Eku Meepah, a neighbour of the herbalist.

The prosecution said on October 24, Madam Meepah invited the women and Gyan for settlement of the matter at her house.

Chief Insp. Kofie said during the settlement, Madam Kodwo without any provocation inflicted wounds on the head of Gyan with a cutlass she hid in her cloth.

The prosecution said Gyan collapsed and he was rushed to Half Assini Government Hospital where he was revived and transferred to the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital in Sekondi where he was still on admission.
