An Accra Circuit Court has remanded Promise Anoma, 25 for allegedly biting off the forefinger of General Sergeant Kwame Abu, a police officer for trying to cause the arrest of the trader, ABC News can report.

Put before the court to answer for his resisting arrest and causing harm, Promise Anoma pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Prosecuting, Police Chief Inspector Emmanuel Ohene Agyei told the Court presided over by Mrs. Jane Harriet Akweley Quaye that General Sergeant Abu is a resident at Nungua Nautical whilst Anoma lived at Texpo on the Spintex Road.

He said on November 03, this year, the complainant, together with General Corporal Alfred Bortey Borketey and Lance Corporal Jerry Opei on board a police vehicle with the registration number GP 5064, driven by Lance Corporal Opei, proceeded to arrest the accused whom a witness had reported a case against him at the Nungua Police station.

Chief Inspector Ohene Agyei explained that when they got to where the accused was, Sergeant Abu went to a washroom close by, whilst his two colleagues approached Anoma.

He said the officers informed him of why he was being arrested and was walking him to the police vehicle when he requested to make a call, but the officers asked him to enter the vehicle and make the call at the station.

He said the accused person refused to join the vehicle and attempted to attack Lance Corporal Opei but Sergeant Abu, who had returned to the vehicle prevented him from doing so, but unfortunately, his right forefinger slipped into his mouth making Anoma to bit it off.

The prosecution said they called for reinforcement before arrested was sent to the Police station.

The suspect is expected to reappear before the court on Friday, November 29, 2019.
