Protests over economic hardship and rising inflation in Ghana have reached a second day as people in their hundreds thronged the streets to express their displeasure over the country’s situation.

The demonstration, according to reports, was a two-day protest led by the local lobby group “Arise Ghana,” intended to denounce the economic hardships.

Meanwhile, there was a clash between the Police in Accra and hundreds of demonstrators, who had stepped out of the approved route for the protesters.

Police fired teargas, rubber bullets and hot water to disperse an angry crowd, who had veered off the stipulated routes for the protest, according to Arise Ghana.

The police claimed they were forced to use teargas and water cannons to restore order after demonstrators threw stones and burnt tyres on the road.
