Two Metro Mass Transit (MMT) drivers on Thursday appeared before a Magistrate court at Asikuma, for allegedly siphoning diesel off the fuel tank of the bus they operated.

Alex Ofori, 29 and Alex Afful, 42, had pleaded not guilty to stealing.

The court, presided over by Mrs. Cynthia Hammond, granted bail to the two totalling GH¢100,000. An accomplice, Kwasi Adu, a resident of Brakwa, has absconded.

Police Inspector John Akuetteh told the court that on March 10, this year an MMT inspector had a tip off that the drivers were siphoning diesel from the vehicle's fuel tank.

Inspector Akuetteh said the inspector conducted his investigation and later lodged a report with the police.
