A 32-year-old 207 bus driver Osei Manu, has been mercilessly beaten with sticks by officials of Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) at race-course in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
The driver who also inflicted with machete wounds was driving from the bus terminal at Kumasi race-course to Manso Keniago, Amansie District in the Region when he was accused of stealing a phone.
According to an eyewitness, he was beaten to pulp when he admitted stealing one of the traders’ phone after been forced by the KMA workers to confess.
‘He was afraid of being stoned to death, so in a move to save his life, he confessed wrongly and they started beating him with sticks and machetes, but he is not a thief,’ he explained.
The other drivers within the station protested that he is not a thief, suggesting that they take him to a police station for the law to deal with him rather than to take the law into their hands.
The irate drivers accused KMA workers of infringing on traders and drivers rights on daily basis.
As at the time of filing this report, Manu was on his way to lodge official complain at the police station
