A group calling itself the Inter-Party Coalition for National Sovereignty has hit the streets of Accra to protest recent violent happenings in the country particularly with regard to the clashes that characterised the Ayawaso West Wuogon electoral process at the La Bawaleshie Centre.
The demonstration dubbed ‘Aagbe Wo’ which means, “we are being killed” seeks to bring Ghanaians together to send a clear signal to the government to check the level of insecurity in Ghana which they say threatens the country’s democracy.

Convener of the Coalition, Bernard Mornah on Adom FM’s morning show “Dwaso Nsem” Thursday said their resolve to embark on Thursday’s demonstration stems from the violent incident that characterised the voting process at one of the polling stations and led to the injury of at least six persons.
He explained the protest is to send a clear signal to the government to check the level of insecurity in Ghana, which they say is threatening the country’s democracy.
