Leaders of the Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty (PCNS) opposition coalition are calling on supporters to rally in Accra on Thursday, February 7, to denounce recent electoral violence. As of Monday, February 4, exact detail regarding the protest have not been released. However, the demonstration is likely to take place in Ayawaso West Wuogon district, where the recent violence took place. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are expected around all protest sites.


Unidentified masked gunmen allegedly affiliated with a political party contesting the Ayawaso West Wuogan by-election shot and wounded several people, including six who were critically wounded, at the La Bawalashie Presbyterian School polling center in Accra on Thursday, January 31. Opposition leaders claim the attackers are part of a pro-government militia, which have been allowed to grow under President Akufo-Addo’s government.


Individuals in Accra are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests as a precaution, and refrain from discussing sensitive political topics in public.
