Two cargo trucks carrying over 40 passengers including children bound for Walewale in the North East Region from Accra have been forced to return.

They were apparently escaping the partial lock-down against Covid -19 which came into effect on Monday.

The two drivers had covered the vehicles with tarpaulin to outwit security agents on the highway but they were intercepted at Ejisu in the Ashanti Region.

The people, mostly head porters and their children said they are being forced by the lock-down to return to the North because they have no shelter to stay indoors in Accra.
One of them, who identifies herself as Adiza said, they would be better off in Walewale than Accra during the restriction period.

According to the drivers, they accepted to transport the women and girls on humanitarian grounds because they had been stranded at the bus terminal for days.

Ejisu Municipal Chief Executive, Beatrice Serwaa Derchie expressed surprise how the two trucks managed to outwit security at all check points until they were found out at Ejisu.
So She pleaded for military presence at all police check points.
