The Accra Regional Police Command has warned the public to disregard and stay away from a supposed demonstration against the United States of America scheduled for Tuesday, June 2, 2020.
The said demonstration is to protest the killing of a black American, George Floyd by a Minnesota white police officer last week.
According to the police, they have not been officially notified of the planned march which has gone viral on social media.
In a statement dated June 1, 2020, and signed by its Head of Public Affairs Unit, DSP Effia Tenge, the Accra Regional Police Command cautioned that protestors will be breaching the law as the ban on social gatherings and demonstrations are still in force.
“The command wishes to state that it has not been notified of any demonstration on the above heading. Moreover, the restrictions on public gatherings, demonstrations, and rallies among others to contain the COVID-19 are still in force and the public is being advised to disregard the ‘open call’ march,” the statement intimated.
