A Magistrate’s Court at Agona Nsaba fined one Kwamina Duncan (NOT the former Central Regional Minister), also known as a Nigeria man for assaulting Pastor Benjamin Kwaitu over a land dispute.
The Court presided by Victor Kusi t imposed 200 penalty units (GH¢2,400) on business after charge of assault fine and, in addition, settled the medical bills of the Pastor.
Months ago, the complainant and the convict had a misunderstanding over a piece of land given to the Pastor as a gift by a family member of the convict.
The prosecutor told the court that Duncan was in disagreement with the said gift and wanted to claim ownership of it.
On Wednesday, April 5, 2023, around 0700hrs, the Pastor and some church members were standing at Nsaba Health Center Junction to embark on church activities when Duncan, on a motorbike, arrived at the scene and started questioning the Pastor over the land in dispute.
In the process, Duncan hit the Pastor’s face with a plastic bottle filled with oil which poured on him, with some splashing on some of his church members.
The prosecutor said the Pastor reported the matter at the police station, where a medical form was issued to him to attend hospital.
The convict was charged with the offense after investigations.
