Today’s story about Fix The Country was meant to be a positive story of how they won their court case against the Ghana Police Service.
Instead, we are telling you about the arrest of Efia Odo and other Fix The Country protesters who were at the High Court today for the judge’s ruling.
Though the police have not released a statement as to why Efia Odo and more than a dozen protesters were picked up today at the High Court, it is believed that it is due to their presence in front of the court while they held #FixTheCountry mini banners.
About the court case, the police had applied for an injunction on a planned demonstration and today the judge threw out their injunction and paving the way for a protest to be held.
The ruling came after they have been picked up and sent to the Headquarters of the Greater Accra Police Command.
They were transported in a police pick up van.
Since the news of the arrest of Efia Odo and the other protesters broke online, Ghanaians have been asking for them to be released.
Now with a High Court and Supreme Court on their side, it is unclear the next steps the conveners of the Fix The Country protest will take now that their colleagues, including Efia Odo, are being held by the police.
