The three-day protest which commenced on Thursday was marred by the illegal arrest of protesters and alleged incidents of brutalities by the police.
On the second day however, the police showed restraint as they engaged in a dialogue with the organisers to possibly have them call off the protest which is aimed at mounting pressure on the government to deal with the current economic difficulties.
According to Olele Salvador of 3Music, the police had sought to get the organisers to temporarily call off the protest to help ease the traffic situation around the Jubilee House and 37 area where the protest was concentrated during rush hour.
However, the response from the organisers led by Oliver Barker-Vormawor is said to have been a demand for an apology over the conduct of the police on the first day of the protest.
“Latest update on the dialogue suggests that Leader of the conveners of the #OccupyJulorbiHouse demonstration, @barkervogues, has told the police that the ONLY condition to call off the protest today is to have the @GhPoliceService issue a public apology.
“The apology should capture the inaccuracies captured in their previous pressers as well as the assaults & manhandling of lawyers, journalists, & protesters suffered by their men, during Day 1 of the demonstration,” he write in an X post.
The police has since dared the organisers to put forth any such evidence.
