The Sierra Leone police said that the incident alluded to both on audio and video concerns a young man (name withheld) who was driving along in a red jeep with registration number AND 878 and was in the Jeep with his fiancé (a pregnant woman).

According to the Sierra Leone police, the facts are that they had a quarrel in the vehicle which resulted to the lady crying while they were still driving along.

The SLP continued that Because the lady was crying and the vehicle was still in motion, that attracted some people who thought that she could have been kidnapped and that the people therefore angrily chased the vehicle with the intention to mob the driver and probably free up the lady.

The SLP added that the driver feared for his life upon Seeing the desperation and determination of the crowd, and sped up to the Goderich Police Station at Adonkia. Adding that the driver parked and jumped out of his vehicle as soon he reaches the police station and rushed in the station in order to protect himself from the fierce crowd chasing him.
