A lady who was severely punished by some security personnel for flouting partial lockdown in Kumasi has finally reacted to the viral video.
In a bid to curb the spread of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), President Nana Akufo-Addo ordered a partial lockdown of the cities of Accra, Tema, and Kumasi.
Following the lockdown which started on Monday, March 30, 2020, there have been many instances of security personnel dealing with some Ghanaians for flouting the lockdown rules.
One of such videos which had a lady being lashed with a cane and made to squat and hop to her home by security personnel who spotted her outside during lockdown hours.
The video which is said to have been recorded in Kumasi went viral with many spreading rumours about her.
But after getting away from her troubles, the young lady has put the rumour mongers on a blast while asking them to leave her alone.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, the lady is not the only person to have been flogged by security personnel.
She further asked all social media users to stop calling her 'ashawo' because she was not visiting a man's house as being speculated.
"Even if I was going to see a man and the police caught me, what do you care? Stop spoiling my name and putting me on social media," she said.
Meanwhile, police in the Ashanti region have arrested some women who tried to breach the lockdown in the city.
The women numbering about 30 were trying to move to Walelwale despite the lockdown. They tried to escape the lockdown by boarding a cargo truck and hiding among foodstuffs.
