Residents of Awoshie in the Ablekuma North Constituency are protesting faulty traffic lights in the area, which have accounted for many deaths, with the most recent being the death of two persons in just four days.
According to a resident, the Member of Parliament for the area, Nana Akua Owusu Afriyie, who drove to the scene to intervene in the situation, was hooted at and chased away by angry protesters.
Military and police personnel who arrived at the scene shortly after the protests began, fired warning shots to disperse the crowd.
The angry youth however got back to protesting right after the warning shots.
Security personnel are however still on the ground, trying to maintain order.
