Arise Ghana Demo: Bizarre Scenes And Photos After Police Clashed With The Protesters

The Arise Ghana “krom aye hye” demonstration which was meant to be peaceful and send a strong message to the ruling government of how the economy is going has resulted in chaos after some misunderstanding happened between the police and the protesters. The demonstration which is meant to last for 2 days started very peacefully in the morning.

The purpose of the demonstration, according to them, is to protest against persistent and astronomical hikes in fuel prices by the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government that has imposed excruciating economic hardships on Ghanaians. The chaos started as the protesters decided to deviate from what the police told them earlier. The protesters were stopped from using the Ring Road through President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s house to the Jubilee House and directed to use Nkrumah Circle -Adabraka Road.

The disagreement over the route resulted in a clash with the police firing tear gas to dispel the demonstrators. Some of the protesters retaliated by throwing stones and returning the tear gas back to the police. My team and I have gathered some photos and horrific scenes at where the chaos started. Some of the protesters have been arrested and injured as well same to the police.

Here is some of the photos;
