Chief Inspector Salifu said the accused deliberately drove past the junction the police officer ordered him to use.

According to the prosecuting officer, the police officer upon sensing danger called for re-enforcement.

“The accused later got down from the car with a club in hand, hitting the police officer and in the process, injured another officer, Inspector Kingsley Viduku, in the head. He was then arrested and arranged before the court,” he said.

The court presided over by Mr.Gabriel Mate –  Teye, said the verdict would serve as a deterrent to those fond of breaking traffic regulations and disrespecting law enforcement officers.
