Newly Built Pokuasi Interchange 'Chop Bar' Operators Granted Bail

The old man and his daughter who were arrested for allegedly operating an eatery, locally and popularly known as ‘chop bar’, on the newly built Pokuase Interchange have been granted bail by the Accra Regional Police Command.

Kwame Addo, the operator of the chop bar, and Comfort Dartey his daughter, were arrested on Wednesday, August 25, 2021.

They were picked up after a video of a man pounding fufu, a popular local food in Ghana found mostly in the homes of the Akan tribes, prepared from cassava and plantain served with soup went viral.

In the video, a man and a woman were seen pounding the fufu by the recently built Interchange, which led to lots of social media users talking about and condemning the act.

Speaking on one of the Accra-based radio station, Citi FM Wednesday evening, the public relations office of the Accra Region Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), MS Juliana Obeng said the duo are expected at the police station today, Thursday, August 26, 2021, for further interrogation and investigation.

“It’s a father and a daughter we arrested in connection with a chop bar being operated by these two persons. These two persons have been granted bill but they have been cautioned for causing a public nuisance. We are hoping to see them tomorrow (Thursday, August 26, 2021) and then we will continue with an investigation”, she stated

The Interchange which is said to be the first of it kind in West Africa and second in Africa, set to function by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Friday, July 9, this year was financed with a loan from the African Development Bank.
