Man arrested on suspicion of having firearm at Arise Ghana demo
A man has been arrested on suspicion of having a firearm at the Arise Ghana demonstration taking place at the El Wak Stadium in Accra.
The Police also said Joshua Akamba had a weapon and was advised by the Police to put the weapon away after his attention was drawn to the illegality associated with such an act.
The second day of the Arise Ghana demonstration will see protesters marching from the El Wak Sports Stadium through the Liberation Road to Parliament House.
Arise Ghana had earlier planned to picket at the precincts of Jubilee House, but the move was opposed by the Police as they subsequently filed an injunction praying the court to direct the organizers to commence the protest at Obra Spot and end at Independence Square.
Yesterday, there were tensions between police and the protesters as the demonstration turned violent at the Nkrumah Interchange.
