‘The lawyer, Yaw Dankwa, was on his way to hear the final judgment of the court when the incident occurred.

According to sources, the driver of the taxi in which he was travelling gradually brought the vehicles to a halt and asked the lawyer to ask for directions from passersby.

He then sped off with the taxi, alongside all the belonging of the lawyer.

Dankwa is reported to have lost items such as a laptop, phone, case dockets as well as other items.
