"I am volunteering to represent any demonstrator who has been arrested today.
I invite as many of my colleague lawyers to do so too. On my way to the Nima Police Station."
The comments of Oliver Barker comes a a background to the arrest of some Arise Ghana demonstrators who were said to be hurling stones at the police during the demonstration.
In his latest post on the same issue Oliver Barker wrote;
"From Nima Police Station, they took them to Central Police. We went there. They said Central Police Station, we went there. They said Police Headquarters. We went there.
The Police are denying access to Legal representation. I hope they at least gave them food!"
The Arise Ghana demonstration is still ongoing and expected to end on Wednesday, 29th June 2022. Scenes and pictures showed some protestors throwing stones and the police also firing some gas to control the crowd.
