The deceased, Razak Abdul Salifu, who resides at Newtown, a sub­urb of Ashaiman, was said to have disagreed with the driver, William Owusu, over the actual change due him after paying the fare.

When Salifu got down from the vehicle, he decided to hang onto it in an attempt to put pressure on the driver’s mate for the 20 pesewas changed allegedly due him.

However, the driver reportedly sped off with the victim hanging onto the vehi­cle’s driving mirror.

Salifu fell off and hit his head on the road. He died shortly after his body was deposited at the Tema General Hospital.

His body has since been released to the family for burial.
