Many regions in Ghana are under lockdown down with the government trying to control the spread of COVID-19. The government is using the police to enforce the lockdown. There has however been an uproar on the police mistreating civilians. Earlier it was reported that a police offer shot a rider three times for defying his orders.
According to an eye witness: “I can’t tell exactly why the soldier shot the motor rider but I saw that he refused to stop at the barrier and decided to run away so all that I heard was three gunshots then the rider fell with the motorbike. There was blood all over and has been rushed to Nsawam Government Hospital. The soldier also picked a taxi and followed them to the hospital.”
