The New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers is offering $15,000 to anyone who can help find the people who killed Kutin Gyimah, a taxi driver.

The people who killed a NYC yellow taxi driver in Queens are now being offered a $15,000 reward for information that leads to their arrest.

52-year-old Kutin Gyimah died Saturday morning after a mob of fellow passengers attempted to rob and abuse him. During the attack, Gyimah collapsed and banged his head on the concrete, while the would-be thieves fled.

We are offering a reward of $15,000 for information leading to the capture of these killers. Mr. Gyimah’s employers at Big Apple Taxi Fleet Management would pay for all of his burial costs, according to Fernando Mateo, spokesman for the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, who made the reward announcement on Saturday afternoon.

“This is an impoverished, industrious man; how could he leave his home and never return? This is awful.” “We are furious, in shock, and we want justice,” Mateo said, adding that he met with NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell, who “assured us that the NYPD will locate those guilty.”

A spokeswoman for City Hall described Gyimah’s murder as “devastating and intolerable.” During this difficult time, we send our sincere condolences to the victim’s family, friends, and coworkers, and we will work relentlessly to bring those guilty to justice.”

According to the authorities, the horrific attack took place at approximately 6:30 a.m. on Saturday at the intersection of Beach 54th Street and Arverne Boulevard.

The NYPD stated that the driver, who was 52 years old, was found laying in the road with “trauma to the back of his head” after police officers responded to a report of an ongoing attack.

The victim was taken to St. John’s Hospital by emergency medical services, but he was confirmed dead there.

According to the first findings of the investigation conducted by the NYPD, the 52-year-old suspect was operating a NYC taxi minivan while transporting many people. An NYPD spokeswoman stated that as the driver went to drop off the passengers, the suspects “attempted to rob him.”

The victim tried to catch up with them, but he was hit by several passengers, which made him fall and hit his head, the spokesman said.

According to sources within the police department, the motorist was attacked by a group consisting of three males and two women, and the fatal assault was caught on camera.

The NYPD did not confirm the existence of the footage immediately. No one was arrested.

“The inquiry is ongoing,” stated the NYPD.
