A 30-year-old taxi driver, Kwame Osei Banahene has been shot dead by robbers at Teshie Greda Estate in Accra.
His registered 2021 Toyota Vitz car was also stolen in the process.
Speaking in an interview with an Accra-based Citi News, the Teshie District Police Commander, DSP Ransford Nsiah confirmed that the body of the deceased was found in a pool of blood with gunshot wounds in his head.
“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 said.
He added that the man “proceeded to give the number, type and the colour of the car to us.”
The Teshie District Police Commander is calling on the public to aid the police in their investigations by providing information on the robbers.
“We have information that the perpetrators have removed the car number plate and have embossed another number, but we don’t have the actual number now to confirm it,” he added.
