Despite receiving clearance by the police to demonstrate over the energy crisis and economic hardships, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said the Police tried to secure a court injunction to stop the protest.

The General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong said at a press conference that the Police tried to stop them.

“The Police went behind us to get a court injunction [to restrain us] but the court threw them out,” he said. Mr. Agyepong added that “I have in my possession court documents relating to the injunction application.”

Meanwhile the Ghana Police Service has said it indeed went to court about the intended New Patriotic Party demonstration billed for Wednesday, but the aim was not to place an injunction on the protest march.

ASP Afia Tenge, spokesperson of the Accra Regional Police Command said “The leadership wanted to alter the route to use the Rawlings Park instead, but the police command said no, due to the commercial activities” it was not prudent to change.

“We went to court to decide the route for us since we did not receive any letter from the NPP to define the route they wanted to use,” she added.

The spokesperson noted that they never went with an intention to stop the protest by the NPP.
