Over 130 motorbikes have been impounded by the Accra Regional Police Command, for breaching the social distancing directive.

This is as a result of their refusal to adhere to the social distancing protocol which bars them from carrying passengers.

As part of measures to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus, motor riders are banned from picking a pillion rider in order to observe the social distancing protocol.

However, some headstrong motor riders were caught stationed at Tudu, Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Ministries, UTC, Kimbu and Tema Station soliciting for passengers.

According to the Accra Regional Police Commander, DCOP Frederick Adu Anim, this exercise will be sustained across the region.

He added that divisional and district commanders have been tasked to do same in their respective areas of responsibilities.
