The Enchi District Magistrate court has granted a GH¢3,000 bail with two sureties to a 24-year-old farmer who allegedly threatened to harm his father.

He said the complainant lives in the same house with Gyebi, who is his son at Kwaku -Attah in the Aowin Municipality

He said the accused quarrels with the complainant at the least provocation.

On September 2, 2020, Gyebi approached the complainant and requested for his share of money for a palm wine they tapped a year ago.
