Confusion has erupted at the court complex in Accra as some National Democratic Congress (NDC) sympathizers who have been allegedly bused to the premises are complaining of harassment by the police.
About five buses believed to be carrying NDC supporters from Kumasi stormed the Accra High Court in solidarity to former Chief Executive Officer of Cocobod, Dr. Stephen Opuni.

Dr. Opuni and CEO of Agricult Limited, Seidu Adongo are in court after being charged with some 27 counts for willfully causing financial loss to the state.
The supporters who have been denied entry into the court complex are said to be unhappy for being asked to go out of the complex.
Information reaching Adom News indicates that the Court manager is getting some of the people out of the court room because the place is chocked.

Prior to today’s court sitting, former President John Dramani Mahama had called on NDC members to show solidarity to some members who would be accused of corruption.
But his comment was met with a swift reaction from the Deputy General Secretary of the party, Koku Anyidoho, who saw the call by the former president as unnecessary.
