A thirty year old man has met his untimely death after he jumped out of a moving taxi on the Bekwai-Awaso highway in the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai District of the Western North Region.
The young man, identified as Christopher Antwi, alias Minister, the 30-year-old was said to be returning from rehearsal to Bibiani from Bekwai where he boarded the taxi.
An eyewitness narrated that he heard Christopher shouting that he wanted to alight from the Taxi for fear of being kidnapped and killed when the front tyre of the cab hit potholes, causing the car lights to go off automatically.
The witness further told Adom FM, the taxi driver is said to have comforted him and pledged to grant his request at a police station near his destination.
However, Christopher Antwi was insistent, and as the driver ignored his unwarranted screams, he jumped out of the speeding taxi and landed with a big thud on the tarred road.
He was rushed to the Bekwai Greenshield Hospital where he uttered his last words before passing on hours later as a result of internal bleeding.
“Save me, I don’t want to die. God please save me, God please save me. God, I won’t sin again. If you save me I’ll serve you till the end of time. Please save me,” he said.
Mr Antwi’s body has been deposited at the Anhwiao community morgue.
