In a recent court proceeding at the Ashaiman District Court, Obaa Yaa Annan and Lydia Koomson were granted bail after being accused of engaging in a public fight, disturbing the peace.
Presided over by Mr. Derick Parden Eshun, the court approved bail in the sum of GH₵5,000 with one surety each for Annan, a 41-year-old trader, and Koomson, a 25-year-old hairdresser, both residents of Nkansa near Downtown Ashaiman.
According to Police Inspector Kwajo Danso, prosecuting the case, the altercation between the two women occurred on August 7, 2023, around 9:30 am, over a dispute regarding the proper disposal of wastewater.
The disagreement quickly escalated into a physical confrontation witnessed by the public, resulting in injuries to both parties. Annan subsequently filed a complaint at the Katamanso Police Station and received a medical form for treatment of her injuries.
Following an investigation, Koomson was arrested, revealing that both individuals had engaged in a brawl in a public area, disrupting the peace. It was also discovered that Annan and Koomson had inflicted injuries on each other during the altercation.
Consequently, the two accused individuals were brought before the court and charged with disturbing public peace.
