Activist Ernesto Yeboah has been picked up by police and military officials at a protest march in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement at the Black Star Square in Accra.
The demonstration which is being spearheaded by the Economic fighters league is part of the spontaneous global campaign to draw attention to racial injustice in America following the killing of George Floyd in the hands of police.
According to Starr News sources, the security officials arrested Mr Yeboah, who is leading the protest, because the group did not wait for the IGP to respond to their notice to stage the protest. He is currently being taken to the Ministries Police station.
Meanwhile, Ghana’s Tourism ministry on Friday held a funeral in honour of Mr. Floyd.
