The exercise scheduled to start from February 6, to 10 would also be executed at the Radiology and Dental Units, Chemist, Quartermaster stores as well as the area of the General Administration.

A statement issued by Dr Iddi Musah, the Deputy Commissioner of Police and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Thursday said the affected areas would be opened on Tuesday February 7, 2017.
