As the people of Tamale and its environs have gathered at the Aliu Mahama stadium in Tamale celebrate the 62nd Independence day which also happens to be the first time a national event of such nature has taken place outside the capital.
A man who is currently in the grips of police decided to try his luck by trying to steal a motorbike parked at the venue of the independence celebration.
According to eyewitnesses, the suspect who is yet to be identified tried using a different key to start the motorbike when an alarm was raised leading to his arrest by the police who immediately handcuffed him and took him away.
