The officers suspecting that the occupants were criminals, gave them a chase leading to the arrest of the driver at the Mankesim Zongo Junction.

The arrest, however, angered the youth who decided to arm themselves and attack the Police station in the area, beating up some police officers on duty and setting their arrested colleague free.
