Children in some worm infested communities in the Keta municipality of the Volta Region are drinking akpeteshie to relieve their pains. Residents told Joy News the children are encouraged by their parents and guardians to drink and residents see nothing wrong with the use of alcohol to battle the army worms which invaded the area. A team of soldiers from the Ghana Army is currently spraying the area. Ben-Coffie said about eight communities had been sprayed. The worm invasion has interfered with economic activities in the area. About 10,000 people can neither farm nor fish.
