CONCERNED DRIVERS ASSOCIATION OF GHANA

POLICE INJUNCTION ON OUR DEMONSTRATION.

The Ghana Police Service yesterday night served us with a court injunction from the High Court of Justice criminal court 3 restraining us from demonstrating with our cars as we agreed on with the police.

We know this is a deliberate attempt by the government to prevent us from exercising our Constitutional rightS

We are calling on our members to hold their fire but not to let their guns, as negotiations are still ongoing to reschedule another date for the demonstration.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this injunction.
