An Accra Circuit Court has sentenced a trader who caused harm to a “Good Samaritan” to six months in hard labour as he hit him with a stick making him unconscious in Ghana, reports said.
“The suspect was pursuing a thief and the complainant tried to advise him,” according to the complainant.
“He did not listen till the alleged thief ran into a group of people for safety,” the Court heard.
The suspect hit him as he prevented him from administering his personal idea of justice on a suspected thief.
The suspect admitted the offense, but indicated that he did not intend to hit the complainant’s head.
After thorough investigations, the convict was charged with the offense, Prosecution said.
