Kwabena Mensah son of the late Samuel Tetteh aka Allebey, the commercial driver who was allegedly murdered by some land guards, at Opeikuma a suburb in Kasoa of the Central region, has revealed on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, the suspects made an attempt to kill him.
Narrating his ordeal to Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he said the suspects broke into his room in his absence in an attempt to kill him.
According to him, because he saw the faces of those who murdered his father, they wanted to kill him and the driver’s mate.
He said, after they broke into my room in my absence, they also broke into my father’s mate room to also kill him because he also saw their faces.
Two of the suspects on reportedly boarded the deceased’s vehicle on Tuesday and upon reaching their destination decided to alight without paying the lorry fare. This resulted in a heated argument between the driver and the suspects.
The suspects were said to have informed their colleagues numbering about 12 over what happened. They reportedly stormed the driver’s residence attacked with blocks and finally stabbing him.
The group also damaged deceased 207 benz vehicle in the process.
Kwabena Mensah stressed, the negligence of the police caused his father’s death because his brother rushed to the police station immediately the land guards started attacking his father however; the police did not attend to him but rather gave him a medical form to take his deceased father to the hospital.
Meanwhile, two suspects have been arrested by some angry youth in the area and handed over to the police.
He further revealed, some residents went to report to the police that, a suspect had broken into the room of his late father’s mate and so they should come and arrest him but the police declined and rather asked the youth to go and arrest the land guard and bring him to the police station.
