The Accra Regional Police Command have arrested 22 suspects for obstructing public movement on Monday, 6th December 2021 during a sit down strike by transport Unions.

The 22 Persons were arrested by the Police after blocking some public roads in some parts of the Capital.

The suspects took advantage of the strike by members of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union over fuel prices hikes.

Areas where the suspects were arrested include Anyaa, Sowutuom and other areas.

The suspect blocked roads and also try to stop cars that were carrying passengers even during the strike by members of GPRTU.
