GhanaNaija| August 20|SAD: CCTV footage of how a Ghanaian taxi driver was lynched in the US

Disturbing footage about how the Ghanaian was beaten to death in the US has surfaced.

The 52-year-old taxi driver, Gyimah Kutin was jumped by five passengers who reportedly refused to pay the fare.

The incident which occurred in Queens in New York on Saturday, August 14, has triggered the arrest of three suspects.

While prosecution begins, the police have released new CCTV visuals detailing what happened on that day.

The video made public by the New York Police Department showed 2 males and 3 females attacking the driver on a pavement.

During the beatdown, one of the males slammed the driver with a heavy blow which caused Mr Kutin to the ground.

He seemed to have smashed his head against the ground and was rendered unconscious.

The footage forms part of attempts to identify the rest of the suspects.

The five subsequently left the scene but were seen in other footage entering the hallway of an apartment building in a bid to escape law enforcement.

Police responded to the scene and later sent him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
