A 30-year-old unemployed man named Wisdom Kpodo who won a GH¢1,200 lottery ended up killing five people as a result of jubilating with reckless driving.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Graphic.com.gh, the incident occurred on June 1, 2020, at Tegbi Vakpomda in the Anlo District of the Volta Region.
Eye-witnesses say that after news of winning the lottery, Wisdom jumped into a taxi with registration number GT 4482 U at about 4:00 pm with two of his friends and started driving recklessly.
They moved the taxi from Woe, near Tegbi, to Keta at top speed with others shouting "no size, no size”. However, on the return journey to Woe and upon reaching Vakpomda, the driver attempted to overtake three vehicles in a row and lost control.
The car veered into a house, which was 40 metres away from the road, ending the lives of five persons. The deceased are Faustina Afi Amegashie, 70; Regina Edzia, 41; Rebecca Agbanavor, 17; Etornam Agbanavor, nine, and Charity Agbanavor Exornam, two.
Three of the persons, Madam Regina Edzia and her children died instantly, while the rest gave up the ghost on arrival at the Keta Government Hospital.
In another report, Ghanaian video vixen Rosemond Brown, affectionately known as Akuapem Poloo has, together with her son, released a video to render an apology to Ghanaians.
Poloo posted the video on her verified Instagram account, saying that she had no bad intentions for sharing an unclad photo of herself talking to her son on his birthday.
According to the honey vendor, she has been brought back to earth by the numerous harsh comments she has gotten since the photo went viral.
