The main girl, 17, who was the reason the police stopped them, confirmed that she was on her way to stay with her boyfriend until the lockdown was over.

She revealed that she has been in the relationship with the unidentified boyfriend for quite some time and intended returning home but not until things returned to normalcy.

All three girls, who claimed they were on their way to Madina, were stopped by the police for breaking the lockdown directive imposed by President Nana Akufo-Addo.

The girls were sighted sitting on a pavement along the Abeka Lapaz road after they were held by the police.
