DSP Adiku further revealed that these suspects will be charged with robbery and murder following the death of the officer they set ablaze.
Sadly, the Bolt driver has passed on. The suspects confessed that they wanted to steal the car from him.
According to the suspects“When they got to Baka-Ano, they asked him to hand over the keys, he refused, so they poured petrol on him and burnt him.
