The police in Kumasi have arrested and questioned the driver of a Nissan Urvan bus, Moses Duah, over the killing of a sanitation labourer of Freko FD Limited, Baba Salifu, alias Sualey, who was in charge of the Kejetia Bus Terminal.
Mr Seth Ofori, a security co-ordinator of Freko FD, told the Daily Graphic that Sualey was hit and killed instantly by the Urvan bus, which was being driven by Duah in the night of April 4, 2008 while Sualey was conveying a heap of rubbish he had cleared at the terminal around 11 p.m. to the refuse dump.
He was crossing the dual carriage in front of Adehyeman Gardens to dispose of the rubbish on the other side of the road when the accident occurred.
The police confirmed the arrest of Duah and said he had been released on bail, pending further investigations.
Mr Ofori appealed to drivers to always try to ensure the safety of passengers and members of the general public.
He said the staff of the company were working at the peril of their lives but said a little care on the part of drivers could make the difference in preventing avoidable accidents.
The security co-ordinator noted with concern that in spite of the risk involved in the execution of their duties, the public looked down on the staff of the company and accused them unnecessarily of harassment of traders and extorting monies from them.
He appealed to the general public to cooperate with Freko security personnel and employees to ensure absolute protection of the general public by ensuring the safety of all categories of users of the terminal.
He expressed the condolences of the management and staff of the company to the bereaved family. Sualey has since been buried.
In another incident, the Kumasi police are investigating the circumstances in which a macho-man by name Kwasi Owusu allegedly assaulted John Elu, a security man of Freko FD company, and attempted to snatch a rifle from a police officer who came to the rescue of the security man.
Three machomen, on April 10, 2008, were seen urinating in the open at the terminal instead of a urinal provided at the place. When Elu questioned them they pounced on him.
A police sergeant went to the scene and tried to intervene but Owusu allegedly attempted to snatch the rifle from the policeman.
Elu re-organised himself and quickly went to the aid of the policeman after the other two had taken to their heels. Owusu was over-powered and arrested.
The company’s security co-ordinator, Mr Ofori, urged members of the public to be vigilant and report people with questionable character who loitered around the terminal.
