The two persons arrested for operating a “chop bar” on the pavement of the newly constructed Pokuase Interchange have been fined by a court in Accra.
The duo, 60-year-old Kwame Addo, and his daughter, Comfort Dartey, 32, were fined GH¢300 and GH¢120 respectively.
Public Relations Officer of the Accra Regional Police Command, DSP Juliana Obeng, disclosed this in an interview with Citi FM.
“Comfort Dartey and the father Kwame Addo were taken to court yesterday [Thursday] and the court has fined them. The father faces a fine of GH¢300 and the daughter paid an amount of GH¢120 and signed a bond of good behaviour,” she said.
“The arrest was done in collaboration with city authorities, and so that tells you there is some form of collaboration with the police and city authorities in making sure that we have a sane country. We are looking forward to more engagements to make sure that some of these [distasteful] things we see, are stopped, not just at Pokuase but every other place in the country.”
