A Circuit Court in Accra has granted the police a restraining order barring pressure group Concerned Ghanaians from demonstrating on Friday, March 6 which marks Ghana’s 58th anniversary.

The Accra Regional Police Command secured the restraining order from the Circuit Court to stop the group’s demonstration after several discussions between the two to reach a compromise failed.

In a press release to the media, the Public Relations Officer at the Accra Regional Police Command ASP Effia Tenge said the restraining order was sought to suspend the protest of the group.

“This was upheld in an application filed by the Accra Regional Police Command for and on behalf of the Inspector General of Police on 17th February, 2015, which sought to change the date for the demonstration due to the Independence Day Celebration,” she stated.

Meanwhile one of the leaders of a group calling itself Concerned Ghanaians says the members will defy a high court order restraining them from embarking on a demonstration on Independence Day March 6, 2015.

Mr Ofei Dei Goodfellow in an interview with Starr Fm indicated that the group will not budge despite the court order because they have not been served.
