Police throng jubilee house after arrest of #OccupyJulorBiHouse protestors

In response to the arrest of protestors during the #OccupyJulorBiHouse demonstration, a contingent of Ghana Police Service personnel has been deployed to Jubilee House, the seat of government.

These officers, equipped with crowd control vehicles and riot gear, have formed a protective line along the streets in front of Jubilee House.

Their presence is intended to deter any further attempts to stage demonstrations in the vicinity.

This development follows the apprehension of protestors, including Fix The Country convener Oliver Barker Vormawor, who were subsequently transported to the Regional Police Headquarters.

The arrests occurred during the early hours of Thursday, September 21.

Mr. Vormawor conveyed his disappointment with the police’s actions in a video posted on Facebook.

He stated that the country had weaponized the police to suppress demonstrators, adding that “they have no right to arrest demonstrators in the country. This is not the democracy we signed up for. This is not a democracy.

The Accra-based civil society group organising the protest, Democracy Hub, had earlier notified the Ghana Police Service of their planned demonstration on Nkrumah Memorial Day to call on “the President and members of the Economic Management Team to #FixTheCountry in light of the level of economic mismanagement and theft that has engulfed our government from the highest levels.”

But on the eve of the event, the police secured an injunction from the court barring the protest from moving forth.
