Mahama to reward hero-taxi driver with a house

The president is promising a reward of a house to the hero taxi driver who botched a planned and well executed robbery attack in Cantonments, Accra Saturday.

The driver whose name and identity have been withheld for security reasons chased and knocked down the two robbers on a motorbike after which an armed military man came in to arrest the duo.

The two suspects Abaliku Sannie, 35, and Oko Quaicoo, 30, shot a Koala employee, a sales girl, and made away with what was reported to be cash from the sale of products from the Shopping centre.

But just when they thought the deal was done, the taxi-driver in a rare show of bravery mounted a hot chase and knocked the suspects into a ditch.

The robbers were said to have shot at the taxi driver in a bid to stop him from chasing them but that did not deter him.

The two suspects are now behind bars and the victim of the attack is responding to treatment. A supervisor at Koala Gilbert Osabutey has also been arrested for allegedly conniving with the two suspects to rob the shop.

But the rewards for the brave taxi driver has been overwhelming.

The driver has been promised a new vehicle by Koala. He was also given a presidential treat Monday afternoon at the Flagstaff House after which the president promised to give him a house in Cantonments.
