Deputy Accra Regional Police Commander told Joy News Lance Coproral Fiaku Micheal, 24 and Baffoe Archer, 24, hired the taxi from Tudu in Accra en route to the Osu castle.

“On reaching the CEPS traffic light, the military officer requested to use the washroom and directed the complainant to drive to the independence square.
