COVID-19: Police take over Accra beaches


Personnel of the Ghana Police Service have taken over beaches in the capital, Accra, as part of efforts aimed at preventing people from accessing the location.

Several Ghanaians complained bitterly after several people trooped to a beach at Chorkor, also in Accra to celebrate the Easter festivities.

The youth threw caution to the wind to breach the social distancing and lock down rules to go and make merry at the beach.

Military personnel on Monday stormed the town as part of measures to ensure that people observe the mandatory lock down imposed in Greater Accra and Greater Kumasi.

The Police have subsequently taken over the numerous beaches in the capital to ward off members of the public who try to access them.

“Our men are everywhere, from Labadi here all the way to Kokrobite, we have stationed men at every corner of the beach to prevent people from accessing them…,” Police PRO, Efia Tengey told the media.
