Conveners of the #Fixthcountry Movement in Ghana have expressed regret about an earlier plan to embark on an armed demonstration on June 4.
The group known for its stance against corruption and bad governance in the country had announced a three-day march after its lead convener Oliver Barker Vormawor was arrested by the police.
In a statement dated June 2, the conveners admitted that their approach to addressing police brutality and other problematic crowd control tactics is flawed.
They noted that they take seriously all the concerns and subsequent backlash from the public on hearing about the armed demonstration.
Oketi Amosu, one of the conveners however in a press conference in Accra on Thursday, gave reasons why the group had wanted to employ private security during the demonstration.
