Carpenter sentenced to four years in prison for biting off driver's right ear

A 42-year-old carpenter was convicted to four years in jail by an Adentan Circuit Court for chewing off the right ear of a commercial driver during a scuffle in Addoteiman, Accra.

Maxwell Senyo, who was accused of inflicting injury, entered a guilty plea with an explanation.

Senyo was convicted on his plea by the court presided over by Mrs Sedinam Awo Balokah after hearing his arguments.

The prosecution, Inspector Eric Ransford Abban, stated that the complainant, Anku Stephen, lives in Addoteiman. The accused also resided in the same neighbourhood.

According to the prosecution, the complainant and his girlfriend sat beneath a tree near Senyo’s wooden building on May 7, 2023, at about 2000 hours.

Senyo allegedly asked the complainant and his girlfriend if they were looking for him while they were seated there.

According to the prosecution, the complainant answered in the negative.

Senyo then urged the complainant and his girlfriend to leave or he (Senyo) would report the complainant to his father as a thief.

According to the prosecution, this resulted in a conflict between Senyo and the complainant.

Senyo then snatched the complaint with a limb from the tree.

According to the prosecution, during the subsequent altercation, both the complainant and Senyo fell to the ground, and Senyo suffered injuries to his cheeks.

It said Senyo chewed off the complainant’s right ear while holding his head.

According to the prosecution, Senyo bit off the complainant’s ear because “he was sitting close to his wooden structure.”

During interrogation, Senyo allegedly acknowledged the crime.
