Some angry residents at Nsawam have blocked the main Accra-Kumasi highway at Nsawam in protest after police failed to show up to rescue two persons trapped in an accident.
The action caused a lot of vehicular traffic on the highway.
The two trapped persons believed to be mechanics were underneath a faulty articulated truck, that transports heavy-duty equipment, when the equipment on the trailer fell on them.
But since the accident occurred, around 3 pm, no police personnel have been to the scene despite numerous calls, according to one of the angry residents.
“It’s been five hours and now one [police officer] has come. We have called the police and they haven’t come. That is why we have blocked the road. When we block the road, officials will hear the reason why we have blocked the road and come and help us.”
“Even if the president was here, we would block him,” a resident told Citi News.
The residents said they would only remove the roadblock when the two men trapped are rescued.
