Courage Ahianyevi Agbeko, a 49-year-old man of Mafi Kpoviadzi in the Central Tongu District, died on the spot after the motorbike he was riding, crashed into an incoming vehicle at Lawui Junction on the Akatsi- Wute road in the Volta region.

Courage Ahianyevi Agbeko was riding a motorbike with registration number M-17-VR 1125 and was heading towards Akatsi, when his motorbike allegedly collided with a Toyota Avensis caravan car from the opposite direction with registration number, GE 7395-13, on Monday September 6, at about 2pm.

He added, the body of the deceased was taken to the St. Paul’s Hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.

The vehicle involved in the accident was yet to be towed to the police station for examination and testing.
