The Ghana Police Service has dragged the Minority to court for refusing to change its route for the planned September demonstration against the governor of the Bank of Ghana.
The minority had planned to picket at the headquarters of the central bank in demand for the resignation of the governor, Dr. Ernest Addison, and his deputies.
But the police asked the minority to change the route for the planned demonstration.
The minority insisted on the original route.
Following this, the police dragged the caucus before court.
In a statement, the police said they had conducted a security assessment of the proposed routes for the protest and concluded that they would pose a threat to public safety.
The police said that they had requested the organisers of the protest to reconsider the routes, but no agreement had been reached.
As a result, the police said that they had been left with no choice but to allow a court to decide for them.
