Twenty-three persons are set to be screened and arraigned before the court on Tuesday morning over the “no road no vote” demonstration that rocked Swedru on Monday morning.
The decision to prosecute the suspects follows their arrest by Agona Swedru Police in connection with the demonstration and the related chaos that characterised including the injuring of a police officer.
Adom News’ Kofi Adjei has reported on the morning show, Dwaso Nsem that the demonstrators failed to inform the police about their demonstration, hence breaching the Public Order Act.

The group of demonstrators on Monday morning blocked major roads in the Swedru town, making it difficult for pedestrians to ply the route.
Some drivers who ply that stretch of the road said they have had to spend a majority of their daily sales in buying spare parts for their vehicles as a result of the deplorable state of the roads.
