Members of the social media movement, #FixTheCountry protesters, clashed with the Police on Friday June 4, 2021, at the premises of the Accra High Court.

According to a report, the protesters were peacefully marching to the court premises in solidarity with their conveners who were arraigned after the Police secured an exparte injunction against their demonstration slated for May 9.

The march however turned chaotic after the police prevented them from entering the premises of the court.

The State Attorneys said the police had to intervene because the protesters showed up in a threatening manner.

They were however allowed to join their colleagues later.

Meanwhile, the case has been adjourned to June 14, 2021.

The group had declared its intention to protest on May 9, 2021, but the Ghana Police Service secured an ex-parte injunction against the protest.

The court ruled that the planned demonstration is prohibited until the COVID-19 induced restriction on public gathering is lifted.
