The Accra Regional Police Command has secured a restraining order against the National Democratic Congress (NDC), from embarking on further protests and demonstrations in Accra.
In a matter between the Republic (Ghana Police Service) and NDC and Kobina Ade Coker, the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the NDC, the High Court under Justice Mrs. Elfreda Amy Dankyi, has prohibited all NDC intended protests from Sunday, December 20, 2020 to Sunday, January 10, 2020.
The prohibition order follows an Affidavit filed by the Police upon receipt of notification from Mr. Coker, on intended daily protests within the above mentioned dates in Accra and all constituencies across the region.
The request by the NDC, according to a statement signed by the deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) and Head, Public Affairs Unit of the Accra Regional Police, Effia Tenge, “cannot be met by the Police in view of ongoing post-election and multifaceted security operations for the festive season and beyond”.
“The Regional Police Command is hereby drawing the attention of the general public, especially, sympathisers, followers and supporters of the NDC, to be the restriction order and compliance”, the statement in part read.
