An operation that took place in Tudu, CMB, Farisco, Railways, and its environs saw many who flouted the law arrested and sent to the police station to be processed to court.
DSP Afia Tenge Accra Regional Police PRO in an interview with Mynewsghana reporter revealed that the police is poised on arresting all those who move without their nose mask on and rightly covering their nose and mouth.
The Regional Police command has embarked on a special operation this morning and have been able to arrest 97 persons who were not wearing the facemask.
“We arrested these persons around the Tudu area, railways, CMB, Farisco and its environs. What we observed is that when these people come into town it is either they have the facemask yet they will not put it on so usually you’ll see them putting the facemask in their bags or in their pockets.
“So they were all rounded up this morning and some were made to buy the facemask or take the facemask that were in their pockets and bags and wear them.
“They have all been brought to the regional Police command as we take a decision on them.”
