Court rules in favor of the late Fijai Taxi Driver

The late taxi driver at the Fijai Taxi Rank in Sekondi was arrested on 25th December, 2021 for alleged drunk driving and hitting some policemen at the Effia Nkwanta Nurses Quarters police checkpoint with his car.

The Western Region Police Command, in a report, had stated that Joseph Entsie was later found dead in his cell with his jeans trousers tied to his neck, suggesting suicide.

But the pathologist who performed an autopsy on him had informed the family he did not die by hanging.

The police then asked for another autopsy from a different pathologist but refused to disclose the results to the family because they [the family] had refused to be present for the second autopsy.

With the help of a lawyer from Legal Aid Commission, Mr. Ebo Donkor, the case was sent to court.

Delivering the ruling, Justice Sedinam Avernogbo directed the Attorney General to prosecute the police officers involved.
