Speaking to Joy News, Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh says the suspect will be formally charged on Monday.
“He will be charged formally and arraigned before court on Monday but he has been granted police enquiry bail.”
Yakubu Abubakar is a plaintiff in a suit involving Abubakar Zayeed who allegedly assaulted him with a pistol.
He lodged a complaint with the police that he was coming from the Tamale Airport when suddenly a Toyota Camry crossed him.
When the vehicle stopped, some guys came out of the vehicle and one of them used a pistol to hit him on the forehead, giving him a deep cut.
But, he decided to take the law into his own hands and revenge the assault after Zayeed appeared in court. He was arrested on the orders of the court when he attempted to slash the accused person with the cutlass.
The timely intervention of the police prevented the complainant from injuring the witness.
According to the police, unfortunately instead of allowing the court to handle the case, the complainant came to court to avenge what happened to him.
