A Ghanaian attempted to travel abroad with a fufu pestle known in the twi language as ‘woma’.
The man checking in at the Kotoka International Airport on Monday evening, he took along with him the fufu pestle.
According to the man he was told he can sit in the plane with a hand luggage of 12kg and below.
When coming to the Airport, he weighed the fufu pestle at home and it wasn’t more than 12kg, the reason he was carrying it as hand luggage to sit in the plane.
