On December 6, 2021, transport operators grounded most of their vehicles over what they described as the incessant increment of fuel prices.
Their decision to embark on a strike action left a lot of Ghanaians stranded at Ashaiman, Lapaz, Madina, Spintex, and some other places.
This caused most passengers to walk very long distances to their various destinations.
The Ghana Police Service, however, deployed some of their buses to assist people moving to their various destinations free of charge.
