At least 29 demonstrators were arrested on Tuesday (June 28) after clashing with the police in Accra, an official statement said.

Under the sponsorship of Arise Ghana, the demonstration turned violent when protesters pelted the police with stones and various other objects following a standoff over the route to take.

The police fired tear gas to disperse the crowd that was protesting over soaring living costs in Ghana.

“The police have arrested 29 demonstrators for their participation in violent attacks on the police and some members of the public including school children during the Arise Ghana demonstration in Accra,” the police spokesperson, chief superintendent Grace Ansah-Akrofi, said in a statement.
