#FixTheCountry campaigners storm Police Station as Oliver faces court today

Scores of protesters and members of the Social activism group #FixTheCountry Movement have stormed the Ashaiman police district headquarters to show support to the Convener, Oliver Barker-Vormawor as police prepare to arraign him today.

Members of his social activism group were heard in a video captured from the scene chanting “We’re all Oliver…Free Oliver” in solidarity with the embattled Cambridge PhD Student’s arrest.

The Ghana Police Service is expected to today put before a court the convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement, Oliver Barker-Vormawor for making comments on social media that suggested a coup threat.

Mr. Barker-Vormawor was arrested on February 11 upon his return to the country from the UK.

He has been in police custody for over 48 hours,  in breach of the laws on the detention of persons in police custody.

According to members of the #FixTheCountry Movement, their convener has refused to eat or drink three days into his arrest.

The hunger strike is believed to be in protest of the government’s suppression of freedoms.
