The Bole District Court sentenced two friends to twelve months in prison for stealing a dog to make pepper soup in the Sawla District of the Savannah Region of Ghana.
The complainant is a drinking bar operator whilst the accused persons are masons by profession.
“I detected that his dog which has been sleeping at his bar cannot be found,” the complainant said.
After interrogation with some clients and residents of the area, one of his costumers pointed fingers at the accused.
The complainant quickly rushed to the accused persons home and saw his dog killed and used for pepper soup.
He thereafter reported the case to police at Sawla and the two accused persons were arrested.
The suspects admitted to the crime and were arraigned.
