Three snatch lecturer’s car; taxi driver arrested

A taxi driver has been arrested after police suspected him of helping a gang of three men to snatch a car from a lecturer at East Legon Thursday morning.

The three attacked the Head of Conflict Management programme at the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre, John Mark Pokoo, after he drove out of his home.

Leaving for work, he had barely taken the right turn some meters away from his house when the taxi carrying the three men crossed him.

They ordered him and his 5-year old daughter out of a Hyundai Santa fe.

The incident occurred at about 7am in a very quiet residential neighborhood. The attackers, satisfied with a Hyundai Santa-fe, drove off with their new booty, leaving the taxi.

The traumatized lecturer called in the East Legon police in who took custody of the taxi. They traced the taxi to a man who has now been arrested and is assisting the police in investigations.

The taxi driver acknowledged the vehicle belongs to him but denied knowing anything about the attack.

He explained his taxi was snatched last night around the Christian Center at A & C Mall, a very busy area.

Police have raised questioned about how his car could be snatched in a very busy area and have detained him. They have also mounted a manhunt for the other suspects.
