- About 5000 protestors are expected to demonstrate against the Ghana-US military deal
- The protest closely follows the arrest of NDC deputy general secretary, Koku Anyidohu
- Koku Anyidohu has been charged with treason
Thousands of Ghanaians are expected to hit the streets today in fierce protest against the controversial military cooperation deal with the United States of America.
YEN.com.gh is gathering that already, some of these protesters are converging at the Obra Spot at Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra ahead of the protest.
Communications director of the Ghana First Patriotic Front (GFPF), says about 5000 protesters are expected to show up at the protest.
This protest is expected to be highly massive and well attended as it follows moments after the arrest of the deputy secretary general of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidohu, for making threats of a 'civilian coup in Ghana'.
So far, the maverick politician has been slapped with charges of treason and also denied bail as he is expected to write his final statement.
Meanwhile, general secretary of the NDC says the party is "disappointed with how laws are run in the country, this is the beginning, we will follow it until we realize the full sovereignty of this country," he revealed in a press conference.
The fate of Koku Anyidohu remains on the balance especially when the charge of treason amounts to death by hanging.
