A video has surfaced of two gentlemen who one could say had their cups full after they were caught by a military man when they tried crossing the Madina Zongo junction road instead of using the footbridge.

The indiscriminate crossing of roads at the Madina Zongo junction has become a burden for authorities, especially because these same people requested the footbridge to curb the constant accidents and deaths on that stretch but many refuse to use it.

However, it would be perhaps the last time the two gentlemen will decide to cross any road when there is a footbridge, not after this ‘punishment’ from a military man on duty.

On the pavement right at the junction where he was about to cross, the first man laid down and experienced military life for a short period.

Noticing that he wasn’t doing a very good job, the soldier went, put his hand down on a particular spot and motioned for the man to go down till his chest touched his hand.

Another unsuspecting passer-by was called to join in the exercise after he tried to also cross the road instead of using the footbridge.

This follows a military raid at the same area in November 2019 after another pedestrian was knocked down by a speeding vehicle while trying to cross the road.

Nearly 50 pedestrians were arrested by the Adenta Police for failure to use the facility after its construction.

Authorities awarded the construction of the footbridges in November 2018 following a series of protests as a result of the high death toll of road users knocked down on the stretch.

However, after its completion, residents still refused to use the footbridges citing its long-zigzagged path till the military arrived.
