Residents of Madina had been on a protest earlier today October 25, 2021 led by their Member of Parliament Francis-Xavier Sosu against deplorable roads in the area.
According to reports, the demonstration which started peacefully at Danfa around 6:00am later saw demonstrators burning tyres and mounting roadblocks on the Ayi Mensah-Danfa Road.
This called for police reinforcement who rushed to the scene with combat vehicles.
However, the MP came under attack from the police, who attempted to pick him up after he addressed the demonstrators, reiterating the power of the people over people in power
There was commotion as a result of the attempted arrest.
The demonstrating residents, however, resisted the police and vowed to fight back if their representative in Parliament is arrested.
The police then arrested one of the opinion leaders. He is said to be a chief of the area.
