In a video we have sighted on GhanaWeb, it showed how some residents of Chorkor defied the President’s lockdown orders so they can have some fun at the beach.
Per the commentary in the video, it happened today, Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020, and it could be seen that a lot of the Chorkor residents were seen at the beach having fun.
Fisherfolks were also seen busy mending their nets and going about their regular activities as children and the youth were busily enjoying the moment as they celebrating the Easter festivities.
Watch the video below;
