8-year-old-girl knocked down, killed by MCE

An eight-year-old girl was knocked down and killed by a vehicle carrying the Municipal Chief Executive officer of Ejura Sekyeredumase in the Ashanti Region, Mohammed Bawa Braimah.

Ellen Mensah was sent on errand when she met her untimely death while trying to cross the road.

Joy News’ Mohammed Nurudeen reports that the accident happened at Kona in Afigya Sekyere East district but there are conflicting reports as to who was driving the vehicle.

Initial report from some residents suggested that the Municipal Chief Executive was behind the wheel when the accident occurred. However, Joy News is also picking information that the vehicle was being driven by the MCE’s driver.

Eyewitnesses said the driver sped off after he knocked down the little girl but returned later to enquire about the situation.

Meanwhile, the family of the girl is infuriated. They are questioning why the MCE has not come to the family to apologise and show remorse for the incident.

The family is currently meeting to strategise on the way forward.

Several attempts to reach Mohammed Bawa Braimah to comment on the matter have been unsuccessful.
