A video clip has surfaced of a Ghanaian police officer chiding a Chinese national for breaching the lockdown directive imposed by President Akufo-Addo.
Until the president announced that the three-week partial lockdown will be lifted at 1am on Monday, April 20, 2020, parts of Greater Accra, Kasoa and Greater Kumasi had been on lockdown as a result of the prevailing coronavirus pandemic.
In the video being circulated on social media, two Ghanaian police officers are seen with two civilians including a Chinese national.
One of the officers, who was visibly peeved could be heard questioning the Chinese national about why he chose to step out despite the restriction on movement.
The officer angrily rebuked the Chinese national for flouting the lockdown restrictions and became even more upset after he apologised for breaking the lockdown rules.
He further jabbed the Chinese national reiterating the views of many that the country is dealing with a pandemic because of them.
While engaging him, the police officer stressed that President Akufo-Addo had imposed restrictions on movement.
The video trending appears to have been captured before the president lifted the lockdown imposed on Greater Accra, Kasoa and Greater Kumasi.
