A young group of Ghanaian men have been recorded in a video as they were caught red-handed dumping rubbish along the Accra-Tema Motorway in broad daylight.

The action of the young men comes as an interesting surprise as the Ghana government set an agenda to make Ghana the cleanest city in Africa.

In the video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Facts and Truths, it appears that a civilian first spotted the young men and drew the attention of the military officer.

See video below:

The soldier questioned the men on where they came from and why they came all the way to dump rubbish at such an illegal site, which they tried to explain in the video.

Contrary to what many people might expect, the military man did not mete out any severe punishment on the culprits in the footage.

It should be stated that dumping rubbish at unapproved sites is prohibited and anyone who engages in that should do well to put a stop to it.

In another report, Korboi and Twyana Balla, an African-American entrepreneurial couple from Minneapolis, have been able to raise $1.1 million to rebuild their enterprise after protesters of the Black Lives Matter movement burned it down.

According to Blackbusiness.com, Korboi and Twyana narrated that they had been saving for many years to put up the brand new business and were yet to actually open it to the public. When the husband and wife woke up to the news, they were heartbroken.

Korboi recounts the words, "I don't know what we're going to do. It hurts, man. It's not fair, it's not right. We've been working so hard for this place. It's not just for me, it's for my family."
