Business was temporarily brought to a halt at the Ashaiman circuit court on Monday after a 19-year old accused person who was to appear before it eased and smeared himself with the faeces in the holding cell.

Rashid Agbo, who is being held on robbery charges, was believed to have done that to present himself as one who is mentally ill.

The trial judge, Mr Gabriel Mate-Teye was forced to suspend proceedings to enable the prosecutor and other officers put the situation under control for the trial to resume.

Agbo is alleged to have robbed one Mr. Stephen Kodjo Ofori, a production reporter at Tema Steel Works, of a Nokia, Samsung, and M-horse smartphones worth Ghc70, Ghc130 and Ghc 300 respectively.

According to the prosecutor, ASP D. Otchere, the suspect and his accomplice, Micheal Agbavi who is currently at large, allegedly attacked the complainant on his way home with his girlfriend on 17th April 2017, at about 20 hours GMT.

He said Agbo was, however, arrested after the complainant spotted him a day after the incident and with the help of his brothers arrested him and handed him over to the police.
