The Gt. Accra Regional Police Commander, DCOP Christian Tetteh Yohonu, has revealed that the main intent behind demonstrators of the Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA) resolve to still picket at the premises of the Electoral Commission is to enable them vandalize properties and cause disturbances at the place.

He explained in an interview with Accra-based Okay FM that, an intelligence report by the Police indicates that the LMVCA protesters have a suspicious plan of destroying properties at the offices of the EC under the guise of embarking on a peaceful demonstration, but insisted the Police will not give them the chance to undertake their plan .

“The EC is for all of us and not for LMVCA – why the entrenched position to go to the EC all the time, when the person to reach and present your petition has agreed and is prepared to meet you at the final destination to receive your petition,” he questioned.

The Accra Regional Police Command on the back of an announcement by LMVCA organizers to embark on another demonstration after the maiden one hit a snag, has secured an injunction to restrain the pressure group from picketing at the premises of the Electoral Commission (EC).

There was a stand-off between the Police and the group in a similar demonstration a week ago, when the police met them with brute force, ending the march abruptly.

This was after the demonstrators defied the option given to them regarding the defined routes, which did not include the premises of the EC.
