It was a sight to behold in the Ashaiman Circuit Court when a 19-year-old suspected armed robber, Rashid Agbo smeared himself with his own faeces in an attempt to convince the judge he is mentally unstable.
The accused Agbo is alleged to have robbed one Stephen Kodjo Ofori and his girlfriend, at Tema Steel Works, of a Nokia, Samsung, and M-horse smart phones worth Ghc70, Ghc130 and Ghc 300 respectively.
The accused and his accomplice, Micheal Agbavi who is at large, are reported to have carried out the attack on April 17, 2017.
But before Rashid could be brought from the holding cell into the court room he had eased himself and smeared the toilet on himself.
Proceedings were halted for about two (2) hours forcing the Judge to abandon the court room while the prosecutor and other officers to put the situation under control.
The case was later recalled as trial judge, Gabriel Mate-Teye continued with proceedings.
The court has since remanded Agbo into police custody and adjourned the case to May 4, 2017, to allow the police pursue and arrest Rashid’s accomplice.
