Police arrest land guards

The Kasoa District Police has arrested two persons suspected to be the land guards who allegedly murdered a Trotro driver, Wednesday at Opeikuma in the Central region.

The 52-year-old driver, identified as Yaw Alebey was reportedly inflicted with cutlass wounds and stoned to death by land guards who joined his bus and refused to pay their lorry fare. 

The son of the deceased, Emmanuel Dawson, who said he was at the police station at the time of the murder recounted the incident saying, “I was told land guards have killed my father. I visited the scene and it was true, I don’t know how the death came about but I was told he had a misunderstanding with the land guards. These wicked guys are really disturbing our peace here and we need government to act fast else we will face them boot for boot”.

He also blamed the police for not showing up early enough to salvage the situation even though he alerted the Kasoa police at the time of the attack.
