The 37-year-old died at the military hospital after he was transferred there from the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital.
Adiku said the suspects confessed to committing the crime following the driver’s refusal to hand over the car’s keys to them.
She, however, refused to disclose the students’ institutions for security reasons.
She added that the suspects would be arraigned for alleged robbery and murder in the coming days.
