‘Confused’ five-year-old child
The Eastern Regional Director of the National Road Safety Commission, Abdulai Bawa Ghansah, reacting to the accident in an interview on Neat FM’s Me Man Nti programme, narrated how a child was clutching onto the mother’s slippers wondering where she was.
“A five-year-old child was seen looking for the mother and holding her slippers. She was just walking around looking for the mother,” he indicated sadly.
According to him, the little girl was not successful in her search for her beloved mother and “is currently in the hands of the police.”
