The Accra Regional Police Command has propitiously dispersed a group believed to be supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) who massed up at the headquarters of the Electoral Commission today Thursday, December 17, 2020.
The supporters were there to protest against the EC’s declaration of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the winner of the December general polls.
Since the declaration of the results for the 2020 presidential and parliamentary polls, these sympathizers of the NDC have been staging a series of demonstrations in objection to what they describe as a “stolen verdict” for President Akufo-Addo.
Present-day display saw party supporters clad in red and black attire, wielding sticks and placards heading to the Electoral Commission in Accra. The frenzied situation led to the blocking of the Kanda Highway and other sections of the Ridge enclave and the firing of tear gas and hot water.
Speaking to the media on the latest development, Director of Operations at the Accra Regional Command, ACP Kwesi Ofori said; “The police is moving practically and strategically to make sure that we keep the peace, and it’s been good so far. Initially, we used engagement, which failed so we had to resort to the use of non-electrical equipment like water to get them to move down the street.”
