"My criminal officer dispatched a squad to Ahenkro, and they returned with him." He has been held since then. He was also complaining of physical pains, so I've instructed the investigator to transport him to the hospital so that he may be treated," he said.

The van, that was transporting 37 travelers, went up in flames, and several of the passengers died as a result of the fire. According to a report made by Kasapafmonline, the terrible tragedy occurred on Tuesday morning, October 2, 2021. One of the passengers on the bus, who happened to be an eyewitness, was able to smash the glass and flee.

When the motorist, who was traveling at full speed at the time, reached the improvised checkpoint, he was forced to hit the brakes, according to an eyewitness called Kwasi.

"He couldn't break quickly because he was going too fast," he explained, "and collided into a stationary car at the barrier, resulting in the collision..."
