“The number of armory present at the Obra Spot is frightening and I do not understand why the police will protect us in this manner”
“We are pleading with DSP Kwesi Ofori to kindly instruct his men to take away the water cannons so we can have a smooth demonstrated as discussed”
“The police have informed us that we cannot push our vehicles on the roads during the demonstration but we are surprise about this development”
“We met the police yesterday to inform them of the route and manner the demonstration will take which they agreed so we are so surprise that our members are being intimidated”, he stated
Yaw Berimah concluded, stating that the demonstrators are ready to follow the agreed route by the police.
