Nii Ayi Mensah, a man who suffered an eye injury during the ‘Krom Ay3 Hye’ demonstration organised by Arise Ghana group on Tuesday, says he can’t see with his right eye.
The demonstration was characterised by chaos on the first day of the protest when the leadership of the group and police officials failed to reach a compromise on the routes for their march.
The police subsequently fired tear gas and water cannons on the demonstrators.
Leadership of the Arise Ghana paid a visit to the affected protestors at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on Thursday, June 30, 2022.
They indicated their readiness to support all affected persons through public support.
