Police in Accra have arrested 109 people at Madina Ritz Junction following an earlier attack on some of its personnel.

They consist of some individuals who obstructed some police officers and a bailiff who was to execute a court order at Ritz junction on Monday 7th September 2020.

On the said date, some personnel of the Regional Operations were assigned to the task but were met with fierce resistance by some hooligans.

They attempted to attack the police and caused disturbances amid targeted violence. Thus, the team retreated, protected the bailiff and took him to safety.

However, on 9th September, the regional police command Accra restrategised and moved into the said location and successfully arrested 109 suspects including 13 females.

Director-General of Public Affairs of the Police Service, DSP Sheila Abayie-Buckman condemned the act and noted that the necessary procedures are being taken.

“All these persons have been brought to the Regional Police Command and we are going to screen all of them procedurally. Those who would be identified as persons who were obstructing the police in the discharge of their lawful duties will be definitely put before the law court,” she told JoyNews.

Videos of the events circulated on social media where the people were seen physically assaulting the officers who later fired warning shots.

 Nonetheless, they were persistent in their rowdy actions.

This joins a series of similar attacks on security officers in the country, some of which have led to deaths.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service has promised to deal with anyone who assaults personnel in accordance with the law.
