The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) has warned that the country may be embarrassed if authorities do not critically check cases of lockdown abuses which has become widespread.
There have been several videos of some military and police personnel clashing with civilians who have flouted the lockdown directive.
The most common video is the Kasoa resident who was ordered to do sit-ups for flouting the directive, this has led to the said officer being recalled back to the barracks.
CHRAJ said despite the directive from the President, people who fall foul of it should rather be arrested and made to face the law and not subjected to various abuses which are clearly against human rights.
