The National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Hamidu Akamba, has been spotted with a weapon among a crowd of Arise Ghana demonstrators.
It comes few minutes after another protestor was arrested for carrying a pistol at the El-Wak stadium, where they had converged for day two of their demonstration.
According to a public notice by the Ghana Police Service, Mr Akamba was advised to put the weapon away after his attention was drawn to the illegality associated with such act.
