The Ghanaian police have warned of a potential demonstration in Accra on Wednesday, June 3, linked to the police-related death of George Floyd in the US. It is currently unclear where the possible demonstration will occur; however, reports suggest a heightened police presence in the vicinity of the US Embassy. Reports further suggest that the Ghanaian police previously denied permission for a planned protest on the issue on the basis of restrictions on public gatherings due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
Individuals in Accra are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
