Driver, Baba Abdulai was fined GH¢840 by a Tarkwa circuit court for causing harm to one Francis Ganyo, who died the next day.

He pleaded guilty and the Court convicted him on his own plea.

The Ghana News Agency reported that, the prosecutor, Chief Inspector Faustina Celestina Anaman narrated to the court that, on December 13, last year, the convict was driving a Kia Rio taxi cab with registration number GE 8857-16 from Asankrangwa towards Dunkwa with passengers on board.

She said Abdulai conveyed Ganyo to the Catholic Hospital at Asankragwa in his vehicle for treatment, but he died the following day while on admission.


Chief Inspector Anaman said on December 23, last year, the convict was arraigned before the District Magistrate’s Court in Asankrangwa and was sentenced to a fine GH¢840 for careless and inconsiderate driving, which he paid.
