Winneba demonstration

The Winneba District Police Command has detained ten people, one of them is a lady, for throwing stones at the police during a rally when they were blocking them from entering the Effutu Municipal Assembly’s property.

On Tuesday, the locals began demonstrating against the government over the purported mining sale of a Ramsar site.

A few meters from the assembly site, the police had previously ordered the irate demonstrators not to breach the roadblock. Nevertheless, the demonstrators began throwing stones at the officers as they attempted to breach the blockade. Ten people were arrested after the police used tear gas to break up the gathering in retaliation.
