The National Organiser of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Joshua Akamba, has disclosed that the leadership of Arise Ghana is gathering footage of police brutalities that happened at the Obra Spot on Tuesday 28 June 2022 to sue the law enforcers.

Members of Arise Ghana were demonstrating to register their displeasure at the current economic hardships in the country.

“We will also go to court with our footage of the police brutalities to sue the management of the police for the atrocities they committed against innocent Ghanaians who were seeking to register their displeasure,” he said.

Mr Akamba made this revelation while speaking on Accra100.5FM’s midday news on Wednesday 28, 2022, in connection with the clash between the demonstrators and the police on the first day of the two-day protest march.

“It is important, as leaders, we counter-sue the management of the police administration for the callous brutalities that reared their ugly heads on Tuesday, leading to the police gassing the protesters with tear gas,” he noted.

He called on the media to make such footage available to the leadership of the group.

“We need the evidence and if we have to pay for them, we will,” he said, adding: “It is important we gather this evidence to confront the police with it”.

So far, 29 of the demonstrators have been arrested.
