According to reports, the male passenger boarded the bus in Lapaz bound for Pokuase and was informed that the prices of fares had been increased from GH5.50 to GH7.70.

The passengers were furious and tried to confront the driver and his mate. Calm returned to the vehicle after many tense moments caused by the new fare.

According to reports, the deceased refused to pay the increased fare and complained the whole way there. The driver became so enraged that he took the passengers back to the Lapaz bus station from which he had first picked them up for them to pick a trotro which soothes their expectations.

The driver, his mate, and their coworkers at the bus station ordered everyone off the bus, but the victim remained where he was in the trotro, refusing to get down.
