An ambulance driver who was shot by a group of highway armed robbers while transporting a woman in labour from the Akuse Government Hospital to the Eastern Regional Hospital, Koforidua, has died.

Mr Abraham Tetteh died at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra on Saturday, 6 February 2021.

Until his death, he was a Senior Emergency Medical Technician and the Yilo Krobo Municipal Officer in charge of the National Ambulance Service.

A group of highway armed robbers, on Thursday, 4 February 2021, shot the ambulance driver.

The incident occurred at about 1 am when the Ghana Ambulance Service driver refused to stop when he bumped into a highway robbery operation on the Somanya-Adukrom road.

The armed robbers then opened fire upon seeing the beacon light thinking it was a Police vehicle and shot the driver in the head.

The robbers however after realising that it was not a Police vehicle drew closer to the Ambulance and demanded money from the EMT personnel who was attending to the woman in labour.

They took away a mobile phone and GHS11 from the EMT personnel.

The ambulance driver was taken to the Tetteh Quarshie Memorial Hospital by a victim of the Highway robbery who was aboard one of the vehicles involved together with the woman in labour.

The driver was later referred to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.

Some section of Ghanaians were of the view that the EC boss declaring Nana Addo as the President Elected was pre-recorded but guess what, the EC came out to debunk such rumors. Renowned journalist, Israel Laryea also shared some pictures which proved the EC went live in declaring Nana Addo as the President Elect but Ibrah One still seems to be in doubt.

Well, in a latest post which has been sighted by Pinaxonline.com, Ibrah One alleged that The EC boss Jean Mensah was taken to Wenchi and guess what, she was bathed in cow dung in order to prevent her from being cross-examined in court.

He added that God is going to expose the EC boss adding that, Afari Gyan who was then the EC Boss mounted the witness box in 2012.

This is what he had to say;

”They took Jane mensa to Wenchi to bath her with cow shit just to prevent her to stand in the box, God will expose her, even Afari Gyan stood in that witness box in 2102.#Ibrahone”
