Superintendent of Police, Anthony Danso, Ho Municipal Police Commander has warned faith-based organisations, individuals and groups, that it would not spare anyone who attempts to flout the Imposition of Restriction ACT 1012 of 2020.

He said the Police would come hard at any Church assembly as Christians prepared for the Easter festivities in the Municipality.

Supt. Danso in an interview with the Ghana News Agency said, "we will enforce the law to the later, prosecute and not discriminate”.

He said the consequences of flouting Section Six of ACT 1012 were punitive and carried a hefty sentence of not less than four years and not more than 10 years with additional penalty units of GHC 12,000.00 or both and called on the public to be measured.

“Let’s work to support each other to contain the pandemic. The virus is real,” the Commander said.

Supt. Danso said the Command would not relax because of no recorded case in the Municipality but continue to patrol the many illegal entry points with sister security agencies to track the suspicious movement of people through unapproved routes.

Supt. Danso called on philanthropists and benevolent organisations to donate protective items including nose-masks and sanitizers to the Command to assist them in their operations to contain the virus.
