Greater Accra, Kumasi, and part of the Central region have been on lockdown since President Akufo-Addo’s directive took effect on Monday, March 30, 2020.

The lockdown is expected to last for 14-days pending a review by the President.

But already, some persons have been arrested with reports of brutality by security personnel in charge of enforcing the movement restrictions trending on social media.

While this has been denied by the Ghana Armed Forces, civil society organisations are not too happy with the development.

Residents in the affected areas are now being urged to stay home and avoid encounters with these personnel who have set up roadblocks and checkpoints at every junction. But what are people’s experiences and how are they coping with the lockdown?
