The taskforce members, who were wielding hammers, were accompanied by police officers, as they seized some of the wares of the traders.

The reason behind their action, it has been revealed, was an attempt to decongest the streets.

Their action, which appeared to be a last resort, was after, the traders had been earlier forced off the streets, only to return on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.

About 200 of them, it is alleged, were allowed to continue trading, after each had parted with GHC10.

Narrating their ordeal to MyNewsgh.com, the aggrieved hawkers accused the taskforce and the Municipal Chief Executive Hon. Jennifer Dede Afagbedzi for mishandling them.

The aggrieved hawkers warned of voting against the Akufo-Addo administration during the 2020 elections. Meanwhile, three of them were arrested in the process.
