A ban has been placed on the National Democratic Congress from embarking on further protests and demonstrations in Accra.
The Accra Regional Police Command secured the restraining order against the party at the Accra High Court.
The ban takes effect from Sunday, December 20, 2020, to January 10, 2021.
A statement signed by the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Accra Regional Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mrs. Effia Tenge, explained that they moved to secure the Order after the party alerted them of their intention to hold daily protests.
“The prohibition orders follow an Affidavit filed by the Police upon receipt of notification from the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the NDC, Kobina Ade Coker, on intended daily protests within the above-mentioned dates in Accra and all constituencies across the region,” part of the statement reads.
“The request by the NDC cannot obviously be met by the police in view of ongoing post-election and multifaceted security operations for the festive season and beyond,” the statement added.
Sympathizers of the party have been urged to comply with the Order.
“The Regional Police Command is hereby drawing the attention of the general public especially sympathizers, followers, and supporters of the NDC, to the restriction order and compliance,” it adds
