SP Kofi Sarpong
Gospel musician Superintendent Kofi Sarpong, who was involved in an accident last Friday at Nkawkaw, has been discharged from hospital after receiving treatment for injury he sustained.
He has been explaining the circumstances that led to the accident, revealing it happened around the spot Asante Kotoko football team recently had an accident.
The ‘Borborbor’ hit maker was travelling to Techiman in the Brong-Ahafo Region together with some family members to perform at the album launch of fellow gospel artiste Sir Gabby when the accident occurred.
The police vehicle in which he was travelling was badly damaged beyond repairs.
Two others who were with the musician in the vehicle and suffered severe injuries have also been discharged.
Speaking in an interview with Joy News’ Doreen Avio, SP Kofi Sarpong said he, together with his driver and two other individuals, have been discharged from the hospital.
He added, “My sister is still on admission at the Police Hospital and I had to go see a specialist at the 37 Military Hospital but my niece has also been discharged and she’s at home,” he narrated.
“About a kilometre away from Nkawkaw, just around the spot the Kotoko footballers had an accident, there was this timber truck that was also going to Kumasi and there was smoke all over the truck.
“I couldn’t tell whether the driver was sleeping or not because he was facing and driving towards us so, I think he realised and came back to the lane he was supposed to be driving on so we had also gotten right there and all of a sudden, my driver just shouted ‘Papa’!
“We would have gotten into a ditch but one of the logs broke my windscreen and entered my car and that made the body of my car, tear apart,” he added.
