About the act
The video on social media showed two persons pounding fufu at night at the site of the interchange for sale. Next to them in the video appears to show some people patronising the mini-eatery operated on the pavement.
The video has attracted wide condemnation from social media users, who expressed worry that the development at the interchange will deface the infrastructure and end up causing congestion.
