Motor Rider Crashes To Death

EXCESSIVE SPEEDING has reportedly caused the death of a motor rider and severe injuries to another person in Obuasi, in the Ashanti Region.

Mumuni Saani, now deceased, was said to be in charge of an unregistered Haojin motorbike with one Fatawo Mohammed as a pillion rider on June 21, 2022.

According to the police, Saani and Fatawo were riding recklessly from Ahansonyewode heading towards Obuasi around 8:30am on that fateful day.

Unfortunately for the two, on reaching Aboagye Krom near Tutuka, the speeding motorbike veered off the road and entered the nearside gutter.

Both Fatawo and Saani sustained life-threatening injuries, and were quickly conveyed to the hospital for treatment, but the latter gave up the ghost.

The lifeless body of Saani has since been deposited in a mortuary for preservation and autopsy as Fatawo is also responding to treatment in the hospital.

“On 21/06/2022 at about 0830 hours, suspect rider Mumuni Saani, 39, now deceased, was in charge of an unregistered Haojin motorbike with a pillion rider Fatawo Muhammed, riding from Ahansonyewode heading towards Obuasi.

“On reaching a section of the road at Aboagye Krom near Tutuka, he (Saani) rode dangerously and in the process veered off the road and entered the nearside gutter.

“Both the rider and his pillion sustained degree of injuries and they were rushed to Obuasi AGA Hospital for treatment,” a police report from Obuasi said.

It added that, “Rider Mumuni Saani died shortly on arrival. Body of the deceased was deposited at the same hospital mortuary for preservation and autopsy.”
