Police secures court order to stop #FixTheCountry demonstration.

The Ghana Police Service has secured a restraining order from an Accra High Court to stop a planned protest dubbed #FixTheCountry.

The restraining order follows an affidavit filed by the police against the conveners of the demonstration pursuant to Section 1 (6) of the Public Order Act, 1994 (Act 491).

Meanwhile the group has vowed to hit the streets on Sunday despite the injunction announced by the Police.

Speaking on Power News Thursday night, Covener of the Concerned Youth of Ghana, Kofi Asante Mensah, one of the groups supporting the #FixTheCountry protest stated they will defy the court order.

“From the President to the IGP and the National Security and those who sought for the injunction are funny. We don’t understand any injunction; we don’t understand what is on that paper. We a re demonstrating on Sunday. The police and the military can come we don’t care. We will go and sleep there,” Mensah noted.

He said the wind of culture of silence being blown in the country will be suppressed

“Do you know what happened with the #BlackLivesMatter in America? They should joke with us and see,” Asante Mensah told Beposohemaa Nana Yaa Amanfo on Power 97.9 FM.

“We won’t go to court to overturn the injunction. We are demonstrating. They can bring the military; they can bring the police to fire all of us, we are all ready to die,” he added.
