An unidentified military man has been filmed giving the stick to some pedestrians who refused to use the footbridge provided by government at Madina Zongo Junction on the Madina-Adenta highway.
It can be recalled that the #Fixourfootbridgesnow demonstrations hit the Adentan Municipality earlier this year which led to some confrontations between police and the demonstrators.
The demonstrators demanded that the footbridges which had been neglected be fixed immediately to curb the unending loss of life on that stretch of road.
The government, heeding to the calls, worked assiduously to get the footbridges done in time. Upon its completion, residents had another complaint, saying the footbridges were too long to cross.
Some residents refused to use the footbridges for this trivial reason and it looks like it’s government’s time to enforce the law.
It is unknown who instructed the military man to conduct the whipping-into-order exercise but it looks like that’s exactly what is needed to get the residents of the area to consider their own lives first and use the footbridge.
