Tricycle Riders At Atebubu Goes On Strike Accusing The Police Of Extortion

cycle riders at Atebubu/Amantin in the Bono East Region have recently embarked on a strike accusing the police of extortion. The tricycle riders who are popularly known as "Pragyia" riders, have expressed their displeasure with how they are treated by the police in the area.

Amid the strike, the leaders of the association granted a brief discussion with the media to voice out why they are embarking on a strike. For them, the police in the area are arresting their members for no good reason.

Yusuf Panga said the following to the media, “Not a single day will police not arrest a member of the Association. When they arrest us, instead of them taken us to court, they rather take GH¢600.00. That’s is why we are demonstrating today".

The leadership of the association called upon high authorities to come and intervene in their current situation. They also called upon the Member of Parliament for the area, Hon.Sanja Nanja, to find time and talk to the police.
