The situation led to the to the blocking of the Kanda Highway and other sections of the Ridge enclave.

Director of Operations at the Accra Regional Command, ACP Kwesi Ofori speaking to the media said “The police is moving practically and strategically to make sure that we keep the peace, and it’s been good so far. Initially, we used engagement, which failed so we had to resort to the use of non-electrical equipment like water to get them to move down the street.”
