Armed robbers have shot a 30-year-old taxi driver dead at Greda Estate in Accra with his 2021 registered Toyota Vitz taxi robbed.
The Taxi driver was identified as Kwame Osei Banaman.
Teshie District Police Commander DSP Ransford Nsiah speaking on Citi News disclosed that the taxi driver was found lying in a pool of blood when the police arrived at the scene.
“We saw him lying in a pool of blood. So while we were trying to organize ourselves to convey the body to the mortuary, one man who claimed to be the owner of the taxi car which the victim was using came to tell us that he knows the victim and that he gave him the car to operate on a work and pay basis.”
“He then proceeded to give the car number, the car type, and the colour of the car to us. However, upon inspection of the body, we found gunshot wounds on him,” DSP Nsiah said.
DSP Ransford Nsiah hinted that the police has been informed that the perpetrators have taken off the car number plate and embossed another one on it but the actual number isn’t known to confirm it.
The DSP then called on the general public to assist the police with information that will lead to the arrest of the robbers.
