Some motor riders stationed at various locations within the metropolis soliciting for passengers were also arrested.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Mr Frank Adu Anim, who is the Greater Accra Regional Police Commander, made these known to the media in Accra on Thursday.
He said the riders were intercepted by the personnel at areas including Tudu, Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Ministries, UTC, Kinbu and Tema Station all in Accra.
The Regional Commander said, the Operation which was meant to enforce social distancing on motorbikes was part of measures to prevent the further spread of the Coronavirus.
“Motor riders are banned from picking a pillion rider in order to observe the social distancing Protocol,” he said.
The exercise, DCOP Anim said, would be sustained as all Divisional and District commanders have been tasked to replicate same in their areas of responsibilities.
