He said Adu went round the resort looking for his friend and that on reaching the table at which the complaint was, asked Mr Bruce why he was gazing at him and this resulted in an exchange of words and later generated into a fight.
The prosecution said in the process, the accused broke a beer bottle and stabbed the complainant in the head and face and the accused was arrested.**
