The reputation of the Ghana Police service is not exactly the best around but if the allegation being made by a survivor of the recent Kintampo accident is true, then they’ve stooped to an entirely new level.
According to the survivor of the accident, he had a huge sum of money with him during the accident which he now cannot find.
Speaking with Adom Fm’s morning show ‘Dwaso Nsem’, Aziz Mohamed, the survivor, said he had Ghc 18,000 with him whilst travelling on the ill-fated bus because he was going to buy some goods for his business.
He lost the cash in the accident which he luckily survived, but all efforts to retrieve it has been futile.
Aziz says he’s been told that the bag containing the cash was with the emergency services who came to the scene, either the police or fire service, but both agencies have been ‘tossing’ him around.
“I asked the Police and was told it was with the Fire Service but when I went to the Fire Service, I was referred back to the Police who insist they don’t have it,” he said.
It’s not clear if the bag is really with either of the two services or it did not survive the accident, but if they don’t have it there’s no need to keep tossing him around.
There’s also the dreaded possibility that the bag was found and is being kept from Aziz.
Aziz also lost two brothers plus four phones in the same accident and it seems even the cash he needs to get his business back on track is not going to be returned to him.
