Blame us for cement-loading ambulance saga - Car servicing company confesses

- A car servicing company says it is to blame for the viral ambulance video

- The company says the ambulance in question was in their custody for servicing

- Police investigations are ongoing into the matter

It turns out that the video of unknown men offloading cement bags from an ambulance was not the fault of the Ambulance Service.

This follows a press statement issued by a car servicing company, Service Ghana Autogroup Limited.

According to the company, the ambulance in question developed fault on the day it was commissioned and has been in their custody since.

“The vehicle got a gearbox problem which was under warranty. We had it in wait until the gearbox was imported and fitted. After repair works were completed, a mandatory test drive was conducted from Mamprobi to Kasoa. It was during the test drive that the driver committed that dastardly act.”
