While on his way, some other NDC party faithful who were with him were heard chanting and singing loudly.

Among the many top NDC members who were at the police station were the running mate of the opposition party, Professor Naana Jane Opoku Agyeman and lawyers from the party.

Some NDC loyalists were rounded up and sent to the police station after they stormed the offices of the Electoral Commission to ask EC chairperson Jean Mensa to resign from her post.

During the protest, tempers went high as the NDC faithful started burning tires and pelting stones at security personnel who had been deployed there to maintain law and order.

As the issue started getting murkier, the police fired tear gas and used water cannons to disperse the raging crowd.

The protestors claimed they wanted the EC chair to overturn her declaration of President Akufo-Addo as the winner of the December 7, 2020, presidential elections.
