In the course of the fight, Sherif pulled a locally made pistol and threatened to shoot his rival with it.

Sherif then chased Alhaji and his group with the gun in public, thereby causing fear and anxiety among the people at the scene.

Whilst people were fleeing for safety, some security men at the Acheamfuor Lorry Terminal rather mustered courage to confront him.

A police man and two security men managed to disarm Sherif by seizing the pistol and four rounds of BB cartridges in his possession.
