Akoma News gathered that the deceased was a resident of Antoa in the Kwabre East district who usually sells cabbage at Dr. Mensah Market to earn a living.
The mutilated body of the deceased has been deposited at the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital morgue.
“We heard them shouting that we should run so we asked them why we should run at this dawn and they said the the brakes of the articulated truck has failed. We gathered some stones and woods to block the road and thankfully it stopped. Then one of the kayayees pointed a leg under the trailer to us. We realised the someone’s leg was cut and they told us it is a cabbage seller,” an eyewitness told Akoma News.
