The Ghana Police Service has arrested members of the Ghana Action Network (GAN) at the Revolution Square near the Jubilee House during a protest commemorating the June 4 revolution.

According to the group, they had converged to remind Ghanaians about the conditions that led to the revolution.

They insisted that they notified the police ahead of the protest in line with the Public Order Act.

They added that there was no court order preventing the protest from holding.

Dramani Selorm, one of the leaders of the network, said the police arrested not less than three of their members.

Those arrested have since refused to give the police their caution statement until their lawyers are present.

Meanwhile, pressure group #Fixthecountry has condemned the arrest and requested the immediate release of the group members.

June 4 is observed by some Ghanaians, particularly the members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), as a day meant to awaken the nation’s conscience and imbibe in the citizenry the principles of probity and accountability.

A group of military men, mainly drawn from the Ghana Air Force, led by the then young Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings, staged a mutiny against the government on June 4, 1979.

It was their aim to bring an end to what they described as the “dark days” of Ghana.

The uprising came about due to a combination of corruption and perceived bad governance.
