Following the President’s order that whoever doesn’t wear nose masks should be arrested to face the full rigours of the law as a result of the surge in the Covid-19 situation in Ghana, 97 people have been busted for flouting the directive.
The arrested people comprised 60 males and 37 females whom the police said had failed to wear face masks while going about their businesses in public places in Accra’s central business district.
From what we sourced from Graphic Online, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Accra Regional Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mrs Effia Tenge has said the suspects were apprehended in a special operation aimed at enforcing the wearing of face masks, as directed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
She said the operation, which lasted four hours and was dubbed: ‘Operation wear your mask’, was carried out in the Tudu, CMB, Farisco and Railways areas and their environs.
She said those arrested would be processed for court.
