The Ghana Police Service has announced that personnel deployed to enforce the restriction on movement will be provided with food and water.

According to a press statement signed by the Director of Police Public Affairs, Superintendent Sheilla Kessie Abayie-Buckman, the measure is to ensure police officers would not wander amidst the coronavirus pandemic leaving their duty points in search of food, water or soft drink.

Supt Abayie-Buckman further called for the cooperation of the citizenry to stay at home as directed.

“The media, opinion leaders and all who have the opportunity of speaking to others should support the stay home directives in this critical period, to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Ghana,” the statement said.
