The Awutu Ofaakor Circuit has remanded fourteen recalcitrant persons in Kasoa into police custody for defying the directives of the lockdown announced by President Akufo-Addo.
The caged persons were picked up in Kasoa after several police interrogations which showed they were moving about aimlessly at a time when they should have been indoors.
According to the Police, the fourteen were acting contrary to the provision of Act 10/12 of 2020 hence their arrest and prosecution.
Meanwhile, Kasoa District Police commander Superintendent Samuel Odame, in an interview with Kasapa FM News Yaw Boagyan lamented the flimsy excuses given by Kasoa residents whenever they are stopped by security officials enforcing the lockdown.
He stated that going forward, his officers will enforce the law to the letter and will not entertain intangible reasons.
They are to appear in court again on April 16, 2020.
