DSP Olivia Adiku who is the Regional Police Public Relations Officer revealed that the suspects will be charged according.
He said, “At about 5:00 pm on December 24, our team from the Regional Intelligence and Operation Unit, based on some intelligence, conducted an operation and arrested three suspects. All these three are [SHS] students.
“They were arrested in connection with the Bolt driver who was severely burnt on December 22, 2021,” she announced.
“Unfortunately, the Bolt driver has passed on. The suspects confessed that they wanted to steal the car from him. When they got to Baka-Ano, and they asked him to hand over the keys, he refused, hence they poured the petrol on him and burnt him. The three are currently in our custody and would be put before court on the charges of robbery and murder,” she detailed.
