Accra Regional Police Command have secured an order from the High Court to restrain members of the National Democratic Congress from engaging in further demonstration in Accra.
This comes after the recent rampant demonstration by NDC over what they claim as a flawed election. Already the presidential candidate for NDC, John Dramani Mahama have vowed to use every legitimate way to reject EC’s election results that favours President-elect, Akufo-Addo.
The letter was signed by, EFFIA TENGE(DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENT OF POLICE, HEAD, PUBLIC AFFAIRS UNIT /AR)
The letter goes,
“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 National Democratic Congress and Kobina Ade Coker, the High Court, under Justice Elfreda Amy Dankyi (Mrs.), has prohibited all NDC intended protests from
Sunday 20th December, 2020 10th January, 2021. The prohibition order follows an Affidavit filed by the Police upon receipt of
notification from the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of NDC, Kobina Ade Coker, on intended daily protests within the above mentioned dates in Accra and all constituencies across the region. The request by the NDC cannot obviously be met by the police in view of ongoing post-election and multifaceted security.”
