Son in Court for Threatening Father

Martin Gyimah who was reported to have threatened to kill one Samuel Robespierre Gyimah at Teshie-Nungua has been granted ?20 million bail with a surety and is to reappear on the 6th of next month.

Prosecuting, E.T. Boison told the court presided over by Mr. Imoru Ziblim that the accused person is the son of the complainant.

He said the complainant educated the accused person at Prempeh College in Kumasi but because of his bad character, he (accused) was suspended several times from school.

The Prosecution continued that since then the accused has been harassing the complainant, adding that despite all this his father sent him to the US to further his education. However, the accused still exhibited the same bad behaviour and at one point raped a white girl and after serving prison term he was deported to Ghana in 1999.

The prosecution said the accused usually comes home drunk and always threatens to kill his father. A house was rented for the accused but the threats persisted.

On the 14th of last month at about 6.30a.m the accused person forced his way into the complainant's bedroom and threatened to kill him. The complainant screamed for help and his neighbours came to his aid. He reported the case to the police and the accused was arrested.
