Lil Win arrested over accident that claimed life of 3-year-old


Ghanaian popular actor, Kwadwo Nkansah popularly known as Lil Win has been arrested by the Manhyia Divisional police command over his involvement in an accident that claimed the life of a 3-year-old.

The fatal incident occurred at Amakom in Kumasi on May 25 hours before the premiere of his movie ‘A Country Called Ghana’ at the KNUST auditorium.

The actor was arrested as soon as he was discharged from the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital on Monday morning. He is likely to be processed for court.

Richard Nana Yaw Ampomah reportedly lost his life while receiving treatment at the  Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital on Saturday, May 25 hours after the accident at Amakom in  Kumasi.

Nana Yaw is reported to have occupied the front passenger seat of his father’s vehicle when it collided with LilWin’s branded Mercedes benz. Witnesses say the actor was driving at a top speed when the crash occurred.

Lil Win has since been receiving treatment at the Komfo Anokye hospital until his arrest on Monday morning. His manager and personal guard have still been hospitalised and receiving treatment.

Meanwhile, the three-year-old boy has been buried by the bereaved family while his father, Jacob Ampomah who sustained a fractured leg injury is still visiting the hospital for treatment.

Lil Win in a statement released last week refuted allegations by the family of the deceased of neglecting the accident victims and attending to his movie premiere same day after the incident had occurred. Despite the injury sustained, the actor appeared at the premiere of his movie on the night the accident occurred.

He argued that he was only responding to the other members of his crew who had sustained injuries.

He later apologised to the bereaved family for his “insensitive comment” and postponed his movie premiere in Sunyani to mourn with the family.
