around 11:30 p.m. and was locking the kiosk when

Asante, confirmed the incident.
He said the KIA Rio taxi with registration number
AW 2389-12, with four passengers on board, was

At the time of filing this report, Tetteh, who
appeared before the Agona Magistrate Court,
presided over by Mrs Aliata Saeed, had been
remanded in custody.
