An immigration officer, who spoke to the media, justified the ‘punishment’ handed-out to the residents who failed to comply with the President’s directive.

He said it formed part of the strict enforcement of the wearing of facemask directive.

“President Akufo-Addo has announced that the wearing of facemask is now mandatory. And so we the municipal taskforce have decided to hit the streets and make sure people follow the directive. So when you are caught not wearing a facemask, you are made to desilt a gutter or sweep the road. This is to serve as their punishment since we don’t want to beat anyone.
