According to the northern regional police crime officer, Supt. Kwabena Otuo Acheampong, the disregard shown by the couple to turn up made the police proceed to court for the arrest of the couple and for them to be declared wanted.

  Meanwhile, another Ghanaian couple has held their wedding amid the ban on public gatherings which is currently being enforced in the country.

 Ghana's President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo put a ban on social gatherings of people numbering more than 25 since March 22, 2020, to help contain the spread of COVID-19.
