A Mercedes Benz reportedly belonging to one Alhaji Agyaa, a rich Ghanaian man in the 70s and 80s, has been discovered after about 40 years of it being hidden in a garage. It is not certain what the vehicle would be worth today but it is certainly historically valid.
In a post on famous sports journalist, Saddick Adams' Twitter handle, it is indicated that the discovery was made at Techiman, the capital of Techiman Municipal and the Bono East Region of Ghana.
It is indicated that those who grew up in the area knew Alhaji Agyaa to be very rich and popular and the only millionaire who could have acquired this Mercedes in the area.
See the post below:
Alhaji Agyaa is said to have hidden the car from the ruler at the time, Ft Lt Jerry John Rawlings, who had an eagle eye on anyone who was excessively rich to ensure that they were not using the state's money.
A special man-made metal garage was built by Alhaji Agyaa to hide the car and it has been kept untouched since that time until now.
The car was reportedly popularly called an Alhaji Agyaa Benz at the time as it used to be a moving monument that townfolk always talked about in those days.
