A Bolt driver who was reportedly set on fire by a client has died

A Bolt driver from Sekondi, who has been identfied as a Navy Officer has died after being allegedly set on fire by a rider on Wednesday at Sekondi-Baka-Ano. A Bolt driver who was reportedly set on fire by a client has died.

Edmund Kweku Appiah, Chairman of the Ghana Online Drivers Association’s Western Regional Finance Committee, confirmed to Citi News.

According to him, the guy died after being taken to Accra’s 37 Military Hospital from the Effie Nkwanta Hospital.

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.

“We’re in the midst of the Christmas holidays, and we’re not sure if bolt drivers will be able to get people home.” It’s excruciating. Two men have been apprehended based on the information we have. “We hope it’s real,” he remarked.

After the rider allegedly poured petrol on him and lit him on fire at Bakano in Sekondi, the deceased driver suffered burns to his face and other parts of his body.

The customer was thought to be a carjacker who wanted to take the car away from the driver.
