Mr. Appiah explained that the revelation has caused sadness and dread among many drivers, who were looking forward to transporting travellers to their various destinations during the holiday season.
Many of the online drivers, he added, are terrified for their life since, unlike the deceased, they lack military training.
“On Friday, our navy officer brother died, and I was stunned for the rest of the day.” Everyone is in disbelief, and we are praying for God’s protection.
