Police cautions demonstrators


The Ghana Police Service on Monday said it would not tolerate any act of violence by any person to create tension before, during and after the Committee for Joint Action's (CJA) demonstration on Tuesday December 11.

A statement signed by Deputy Commander of Police, Mr. K. A. Opare-Addo, said the Regional Police Command had information that some individuals intended to carry arms to defend themselves during the CJA march.

The statement said the police would supply protective facilities for the demonstration, tagged "peaceful" by the CJA and advised demonstrators to obey the rules of the game and not create any situation to destroy a supposed peaceful demonstration.

"Protagonists of arms carrying during the demonstration must be said to be prophets of doom and are warned to desist from any acts that will go to incite demonstrators against the police and other law abiding citizens of the metropolis", it added.

The Deputy Commander also said the Command had not received any notice from the group who claimed to be opposed to the CJA demonstration scheduled for Tuesday and will not tolerate any counter demonstrators.

He advised the group to reconsider their decision and desist from the act.
