Efia Odo, More Than 10 Other #FixTheCountry Campaigners Arrested

Actress and socialite, Efia Odo, and more than 10 other #FixTheCountry campaigners, have been arrested by the police.

This was shortly after a court hearing the case on whether or not the group should be allowed to stage a street protest adjourned proceedings.

After hearing legal arguments on Friday morning, the High Court adjourned proceedings to deliver a ruling at 1:30 pm.

During the period when the legal arguments were going on, some of the campaigners pitched camp in front of the law court complex holding placards .

Shortly after proceedings, they were joined by their colleagues who were in the court room.

While taking photographs, police officers from the Accra Region Command arrived and arrested more than 10 of them.

The campaigners have in the last two months demanded that government fixes what they said is, worsening living conditions in the country.

Their request has been met with stiff resistance from the Ghana Police Service, which has cited prevailing Covid-19 restrictions as reasons for not allowing them.
