Despite the police department’s warning, the demonstration, according to a group going by the name Democracy Hub, would go on as scheduled.
The organizers pleaded with the public in a statement dated September 20, 2023 to reject any police warnings and show up at the 37-bus terminal on the scheduled date, September 21, 2023, for a march to the Jubilee House.
The Ghana Police requested an injunction against the organization identifying itself as Democracy Hub in a letter to the court earlier today.
In its statement, the Police urged the public to ignore any calls from the demonstration’s organizers as it awaited the court’s decision on the injunction.
However, the group claims it has not been served and is not aware of the police’s application.
“Furthermore, we want the general public to be aware that the Police persisted in their deception throughout our interaction with them, leading us to assume that they would uphold the law and fulfill their duties under the Public Order Act.
“We are appalled by the desperate and likely partisan attempts by the Police to disrupt peaceful and democratic mobilization for our upcoming #OccupyJulorbiHouse picket,” the group’s statement stated.
