A Koforidua to Kumasi bound driver identified as Nunoo has been admitted at the Eastern Regional Hospital in Koforidua after he was hacked several times by an artisanal Machete Sharpener for urinating in a gutter in front of his shop.

The victim suffered multiple cutlass wounds in the head and hand.

The suspect whose identity yet to be known has been arrested by the New Juaben South Police Command.

The incident occurred Tuesday near the Koforidua branch of Franco Trading Phone Shop close to the Kumasi Lorry Terminal.

Eyewitnesses say misunderstanding ensued between the two when the driver defied warning by the suspect not to urinate in a gutter in front of his shop.

As tempers fled up, the driver allegedly slapped the suspect compelling him to dash into his shop to pull one of the sharpened cutlasses to chase the driver who took to his heel.

According to the eyewitnesses, the driver in the course of running away fell down and was attacked with a cutlass by the suspect.
