Ghanaian Taxi Driver Killed By Passengers Who Refused To Pay
In a New York City suburb in the United States of America, a gang of unruly passengers beat a 52-year-old Ghanaian taxi driver to death.
On Saturday, August 13, 2022, Gyimah Kutin was dropping off five passengers in the Rockaways at Beach 54th Street and Arverne Boulevard when things got heated.
According to legend, Gyimah pursued the customers who wouldn’t pay for his services.
The suspects—three men and two women—turned on him, and one of them struck him in the head with a blow that caused him to hit the ground.
After making an unsuccessful attempt to rob Gyimah, the suspects departed the scene.
Police later discovered his body.
The New York Federation of Taxi Drivers, which has offered a $15,000 prize for information leading to the arrest of the culprits, and the Ghanaian community in New York are claimed to have become incensed after learning of his death.
Gyimah’s wife, Abigail Bawuah, has said that she is deeply saddened by her husband’s passing.
“He was a good, good man. He was my backbone. I’m lost right now. My children’s hero,” Bawuah, who could not hold back her tears, said.
Described as a dedicated Christian, Kutin left behind four kids aged between 3 and 8.
