A 25- year-old Driver, Paul Amoanu Johnson was on Tuesday remanded into prison custody by a Takoradi Circuit Court for allegedly gouging out the eye of a 27 year old trader.
He pleaded not guilty to the charge of assault.
Giving the facts of the case, Inspector Seth Ahelegbe, told the court presided over by Mr Charles Nimako that on January 6, the accused met the victim at Vienna City night Club in Takoradi where he worked as an errand boy.
