The police will ask the court for authority to detain him beyond the 48-hour constitutionally-mandated limit to enable the complete investigations into the accident, according to a report by 3news.com.

Driving an unregistered Daewoo saloon car, Atsu is said to have failed to heed the siren of the vice-president's convoy and had gone ahead to crash into a black SUV  in the convoy at Gomoa Adams, near Nsakyire Junction on the Winneba-Cape Coast highway.
