Police Disperse NDC Demonstrators At EC Headquarters

The Accra Regional Police Command had dispersed supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) who massed up at the headquarters of the Electoral Commission today [Thursday, December 17, 2020].

Reporting from the EC headquarters, Rainbow Radio’s Fiifi Ankomah said the demonstrators were protesting the results declared by the EC last week.

The chaotic situation led to the blocking of the Kanda Highway and other sections of the Ridge enclave and the firing of tear gas.

The police first fired water at the protestors before firing tear gas to disperse them.

The Director of Operations at the Accra Regional Command ACP Kwesi Ofori speaking to the media said: “The police are moving practically and strategically to make sure that we keep the peace, and it’s been good so far. Initially, we used engagement, which failed so we had to resort to the use of non-electrical equipment like water to get them to move down the street.”
