The suspect (taxi driver) was hired by the victim for a five-day service for D10,000 but allegedly conspired with accomplices Ebrima Konateh, Ebrima Sarr, Demba Jarju, and Edi Boy—all arrested except one—to commit the robbery. They carried out the crime during a trip from Abuko to a location between Ndemban Clinic and Sting Corner, where they ambushed the victim.

The public is reminded to remain vigilant, especially during feast periods, and to report any suspicious activities to the nearest police station.
