Nima youth defy police directive against wild merrymaking

Some Muslim youth in Accra have defied police directive which prohibits the reckless riding of motorbikes and other forms of wild celebrations as Ghanaians mark the Eid-ul-Fitr holiday.

Wild merrymaking activities and reckless riding of motor bikes, have over the years characterized Eid celebrations.

This has often resulted in casualties with some cases of accidental deaths recorded in the past.

To ensure a safer holiday, the Ghana Police Service has put in place strategies to ensure law and order and also to avert the re-occurrence of such unfortunate incidents.

Public Relations Director of the Police Service, Superintendent Cephas Arthur cautioned against defiance of these regulations saying.

“Those who violate the laws at holiday destinations and especially on our roads will have themselves to blame, our personnel will be very visible on the streets to maintain law and order, people should know that our laws are still active and enforceable on holidays”.

But in defense of their actions some bikers at Nima said this is the only way they know how to enjoy their Eid celebrations
