“Krom AyƐ Hye” demo: NDC’s Akamba spotted with weapon at El-Wak stadium

The Police have spotted the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) National Organizer, Joshua Akamba wielding a weapon around the El-Wak stadium where protestors have converged to embark on the Krom AyƐ Hye demo today, 29th June 2022.


According to a statement posted on the Facebook page of the Ghana Police Service, Mr Akamba was duly advised by the Police to put the weapon away after his attention was drawn to the illegality associated with such an act.


“He was also urged to notify other demonstrators to desist from carrying offensive weapons during the demonstration,” the statement added.


The Arise Ghana Pressure group is today(Wednesday) staging a second demonstration after Tuesday’s protest turned chaotic after there was disagreement between the leaders of the demonstration and the Police on which route to use.


The angry demonstrators pelted the Police with stones while the law enforcement officers responded with shots of tear gas and rubber bullets. In the ensuing confrontation, over 10 police officers and several protestors were injured.


A total of 29 protestors were subsequently arrested for their roles in the attack on the police and the vandalizing of police vehicles.


The two-day demonstration by pressure group Arise Ghana began Tuesday, June 28, 2022 midday.


Among others, the group which is made up of different political parties is protesting alleged corruption in the Akufo-Addo government.


“Protest against persistent and astronomical hikes in fuel prices by the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government that has imposed excruciating economic hardships on Ghanaians.


“Protest against the imposition of the obnoxious E-Levy on the already-burdened Ghanaian people by the insensitive Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government and demand for its immediate repeal.


“Demand a full-scale and bi-partisan parliamentary probe into COVID-19 expenditures.


“Protest against the grabbing of State lands by officials of the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government, particularly the de-classification of huge portions of the Achimota Forest reserve.

“Protest against the increased rate of police brutalities and state-sponsored killing of innocent Ghanaians, as well as the growing culture of human rights abuses under the watch of President Akufo-Addo and Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia,” their statement noted.
