He was arrested by security operatives at the Black Star Square in Accra last week Saturday for organizing a vigil against police brutalities against Blacks in America in wake of George Floyd murder.

The prosecution informed the court that the accused person had gathered about 200 persons to stage a protest in support of the Black Lives Matter movement in America.

But when the police moved in to inquire if he had secured a permit, they found out through interrogation that he had none and was arrested as the leader and organizer of the group.
The case has been adjourned to July 7, 2020.
