As today starts the lockdown of some areas in Accra and Kumasi, some residents have thought to flee the regions to places with no lockdown restrictions.
Ghana’s President Nana Addo, announced a lockdown on these major cities starting today, 30th March, 2020 in a national press statement. Read everything about the lockdown here.
A lot has gone on since, and it’s only been hours since the official lockdown began.
People have disobeyed and have been punished by military and policemen, while some have just been obedient enough to stay in their homes as directed by the president. See the several videos of military men and civilians clashing here.
Meanwhile popping up on the internet is a video of a group of people packed at the back of a tractor trying to escape the lockdown by leaving Accra.
Reports have it that those in the truck were initially in VIP bus which was asked by police to disembark the journey to the northern region from Accra.
Lucky for them but also unfortunately, they joined this truck which will later also get stopped at Ejisu by police and Military personnel, causing their arrest.
Watch the video below as these men, women ad children cry for mercy, and tell us what you think in the comments section.
