The suspects after their arrest confessed to committing the crime.

The news has brought sadness and fear amongst bolt drivers in the area.

Meanwhile, the court has adjourned the case to Friday, January 14, 2022.


Joseph Evans Abekah, lawyer for suspect Adolf Eshun said “the police are still doing their investigations, so the court has remanded them to avoid any interference. So this is a provisional charge.





When they are done with the investigation then we will know the main charges. But we are of the strong opinion that after the investigation, my client will not be involved because he is innocent. He was just called by his friends who were stranded, to order a vehicle for them, and he did just that.”
