A court in Accra fined the two people who were arrested by police for operating an eatery on the pavement of the newly constructed Pokuase Interchange.
Kwame Addo, 60, and his daughter, Comfort Dartey, 32, were fined GH300 and GH120, respectively.
A viral video on social media earlier this week showed two people pounding fufu late at night at the site of the interchange for sale.
In the video, some people were eating at the pavement mini-market.
The video drew widespread condemnation from social media users, who expressed concern that developments at the interchange would deface the infrastructure and result in the congestion it was designed to alleviate.
DSP Juliana Obeng, Public Relations Officer of the Accra Regional Police Command, stated to the media:
“Comfort Dartey and his father, Kwame Addo, were taken to court yesterday [Thursday] and fined. The father faces a GH300 fine, and the daughter paid GH120 and signed a good behaviour bond,”
