The Ghana Police Service has arrested over 15 protesters of the ongoing “Krom Ay3 Hye” demonstration by the pressure group, Arise Ghana.
The suspects were allegedly picked up for their involvement in the tension that has characterized the demo
It is unclear what exactly triggered the chaos at the scene, but some protestors also pelted stones at the police injuring some officers and vandalising Police vehicles in the process.
The Peaceful protest quickly turned violent with several people sustaining injuries in the process. Some demonstrators who spoke to Starr News said the clashes started after disagreements between the Police and protesters over routes to use.
The Police have since tweeted that they were attacked by the protesters describing the action as shameful and unfortunate.
Meanwhile, the suspects are currently detained by the police.
