Darl Addo commented:

We have lost it as a nation. We are very heartless. So they could not have taken him to the nearest hospital to save his life. It wouldn't cost them anything. Health insurance was done for this situation. Our morals are indeed dead in Ghana. To the driver and passengers of that vehicle, may you suffer for your actions. This is very cruel. And I am sure very soon we will know the driver involved. It's a small country.
