A number of Ghanaian celebrities have added their voices to the calls for the release of protestors of who want to be allowed to picket at the Jubilee House following their arrest earlier on Thursday during a gathering at the 37 Hospital bus station.
Taking to their various social media handles to express their frustrations with their arrests, the likes of rapper Sarkodie, Kwesi Arthur, Actor/politician, John Dumelo, actress Efia Odo, DJ Black, KiDi, Lydia Forson, Medikal, M.anifest, Black Sherif, among others are challenging the Police to do right by the people.
Earlier, Efia Odo had challenged Ghanaian celebrities to let their voices be heard in matters of national interest, following the arrest of the protestors.
The Accra-based civil society group organising the protest, Democracy Hub, had earlier notified the Ghana Police Service of their planned demonstration on Nkrumah Memorial Day to call on “the President and members of the Economic Management Team to #FixTheCountry in light of the level of economic mismanagement and theft that has engulfed our government from the highest levels.”
However, the police filed an injunction application yesterday, a day to the demonstration and proceeded to arrest protestors today.
