Pandemonium broke out on Monday morning January 28, 2019, in Kumasi when drivers at Sofoline in the Ashanti Regional were subjected to severe lashes by five uniformed military personnel over wrongful parking.
The drivers who have been given a designated area for loading and parking which is the Sofoline lorry terminal by city authorities decided to abandon the place and are now and operating on the roadside close to the Fourth Battalion Infantry (4BN).
Several knockdowns have occurred at the area where the drivers wrongfully park which also happens to be a zebra crossing for pedestrians causing unnecessary traffic around the area within some periods in the day.
Victims of these knockdown by speeding vehicles have been mostly students and travelers over the years which has been a major concern to the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA).
Thenewsgh.com can report that the authorities of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly on several occasions have warned the drivers to vacate the area or incur their wrath but they appear adamant until the latest action by the military on Monday morning.
