Spread the love

A man believed to be in his thirties has been confirmed dead after fighting with a commercial drivers’ mate over GH₵2 fare increment.

The sad incident occurred on Saturday, October 29 at the Lapaz bus terminal around 8:00pm.

The male passenger is said to have boarded the vehicle from Lapaz heading to Pokuase and was told the fare had been increased from GH₵5.50 to GH₵7.70.

After several agitations over the new fare by all the passengers in the vehicle, calm was restored.

A reliable source say, however, the deceased refused to pay the new fare and continued to grumble. This angered the driver who decided to return the passengers to the Lapaz bus terminal where he picked them up.

An eyewitness in an interview said the driver and his mate together with their colleagues at the bus terminal compelled all the passengers to disembark from the vehicle but the victim refused to budge.


This, according to the eyewitness led to a fight among the deceased, the driver and his mate and others at the bus terminal.

His body has since been deposited at the morgue.
