Kelvin Okyere, a young Ghanaian who is a vlogger, has revealed how his life changed after jumping from the Dzorwulu Overhead in Accra on February 20, 2019.
In an interview with ZionFelix sighted by YEN.com.gh, Kelvin mentioned that the incident happened around 9:30 pm when he was on his way to Accra Technical University from Madina and decided to use the Dzorwulu Overhead route.
According to Kelvin, he was around the overhead when a man aggressively emerged with a cutlass and gave him a hot chase.
Watch the video below:
Initially, Kelvin thought the man was an armed robber who was after his money or other valuables, but that turned out not to be so.
It is reported that the area where Kelvin got attacked is a known spot for dangerous attacks on individuals.
Kelvin lost eight teeth after he jumped from the overhead in an attempt to escape getting assassinated and had to live on a liquid diet for six months.
Currently, the young man looks fit as injuries he obtained on his jaw, hand, and leg have been treated well, but he still experiences weaknesses in some parts.
In another sad report, on June 30, 1982, an indelible mark was made on Ghana's history when three High Court judges and a retired army officer were murdered in cold blood at the Bundase Military Range in the Accra Plains.
According to a report, all four renowned Ghanaian icons were killed after being abducted at night by unidentified assailants.
They were Justice Cecilia Koranteng-Addo, Justice Kwadwo Agyei Agyepong, Justice Fred Poku Sarkodie, and Major Sam Acquah (Rtd).
