Ewe Man Sentenced To Life Imprisonment For Killing 10 Cats Within 5 Days In China
Koku Ametohoe, a middle aged man who hails from the Volta Region of Ghana has been arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment. His crime? He has killed 10 cats.
According to the Beijing city authorities, cats are worshiped and must not be killed by anyone. However, when Koku was asked why he killed the cats in the Court room, this is what he said:
“Where I come from, we use this for light soup and trust me, it tastes better than frog meat. So I wanted to use this ten for soup and I planned to kill more to take home. Chinese cats taste very nice.”
In his concluding remarks, Ah Bao Chang, the Judge said “I would have given him a 50-year sentence but since he said cats taste better than frogs, I will give him a life sentence. That statement is a treasonable offence”
