The Ghana police has issued a strong warning to persons planning to take part in a demonstration against the killing of a Blackman in the US.
On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, an African-American man, died in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the US after Derek Chauvin, a white American Minneapolis police officer handcuffed him lying face down on a city street during an arrest, kept his knee on the right side of Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds until Floyd became unresponsive and died.
His death has sparked protests in the US and several in other countries.
But in a statement, the Ghana police service said the restrictions against large public gatherings, rallies and demonstrations due to COVID-19 does not permit such action and so persons interested in participating in the demonstration must “disregard” the call for them to join.
