Former Asante Kotoko defender John Kuffour has been granted a bail of 50,000 Cedis by an Ejisu District Court for manhandling and bitting of the nipples of his former girlfriend.
Presided over by judge Kwaku Baah Frempong, Kufour is expected to pay the amount with two sureties and also assist his former girlfriend to undergo surgery to repair the damage caused and results submitted to the court within seven working days.
According to prosecutor Chief Inspector Emmanuel Appiah Kubi, the complainant who is 36-year-old (Miss) Dennisa Hagan and a hairdresser by profession has been fiancée to John Kuffour for the past six years but events changed following a misunderstanding between them in 2016.
On January 1 2017, the former Kotoko player visited his former girlfriend in her house in an attempt to settle the problems they had faced but it turned worse when the complainant didn’t give him an answer whether she was interested or not in the relationship again.
Kufour, not happy with her gesture, followed her to the kitchen and another misunderstanding ensured. Hagan accidentally pushed Kuffour and the latter held onto her dress in her attempt to vacate the scene. In the process, Kuffour bit her left nipple causing multiple wounds.
The two are to reappear in court next month for another sitting.
Kufour also had stints with former Ghana Premier League side Kpando Heart of Lions during his prime time as a footballer.
