97 persons have been arrested for not wearing face masks by the Accra Police command.
The persons consist of 60 males and 37 females.
The operation as carried out by the police is to enforce the compulsory wearing of facemasks in public to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Class FM reports that the four-hour operation was carried out around Tudu, CMB, Farisco, Railways and its environs.
Watch the video below:
“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.”
