A 23-year-old man who attempted to rob a Kia Morning vehicle on the night of 19th July 2021 around Kpeshie Lagoon in Accra is in Police custody pending Court.

The suspect, Prince Aboadem, with an accomplice currently on the run hired the taxi (driver’s name withheld) at Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Accra and told the driver to take them to Nungua, also in Accra.

In an attempt to steal the vehicle, the suspects held the neck of the taxi driver against his seat to strangle him but the driver raised an alarm alerting the soldiers on duty at the Military Academy Training School to the scene and to the rescue of the driver.

Prince Aboadem was arrested by the soldiers and handed over to the police while his accomplice fled. Police continue to advise the general public, especially commercial drivers to continue to make personal security a priority.
