A young man has been ordered by some military men to sweep and clear a heap of rubbish around the Kasoa market for flouting the lockdown rules.
Those around at the time he was sweeping were heard in the Akan language saying that the man was taking photos of the military men on duty instead of staying at home.
They were also heard saying that the young man claimed he had gone to the area to buy an earpiece for his phone.
While they were laughing at him, the young man quietly went about his new job of sweeping and gathering the rubbish.
Many people have reacted to the video with laughter emojis:
Nagme said the man was lucky he was not beaten:

Benjy only laughed and sighed:
brahbenjy: “eie gh hmm.”
There are many other videos trending on social media about how some individuals are bent on going out despite the order to stay at home.
President Akufo-Addo had given this order as part of the measures to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
The lockdown is partial and is to be observed by individuals in some parts of the Greater Accra Region, Kumasi, and Kasoa.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Health Service has confirmed that 31 out of 152 coronavirus patients have recovered.
These ones have been successfully treated and discharged.
