The Mankesim Divisional police commander, ASP Owuahen Acheampong, narrating the incident, said the police officers at various checkpoints on the Winneba Mankesim-Highway tried stopping a taxi cab with ten passengers who were speeding, but the cab failed to stop.
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.
ACP Owuahen Acheampong said though no arrests have been made, his outfit is working hard to ensure that perpetrators are brought to book.
