The Ghana Police Service (GPS) has revealed that some commercial drivers could take advantage of their passengers if care is not taken.

In a video that has since gone viral, a passenger is robbed of his money after he sought to assist a taxi driver.

The passenger, via a phone call, informed someone that he had gone to cash some money.

Soon after, the driver informs him that there is a problem with the car and there is the need to push it.

The passenger then alights, leaving his bag which contains money at the back seat of the car.

After a few seconds, the driver, who was pretending to help push the car forward, hurriedly sits in it and drives off with the passenger’s money.

The police have advised Ghanaians that it is important to take relevant details of every vehicle you use to move from one place to another as it may help you in unfortunate situations.

The service further cautioned all Ghanaians to be vigilant and help fight crime.

Some Ghanaians took to social media to react to the video:

Tawiah noted that the police need to educate the public on issues such as this.

Wisdom added it is educative and it has been noted.

Selormey thanked the police for the information.

Osman said this is a good job by the police service.
