Some 10 youth in connection with the riot that occurred in Teshie, a suburb of Accra against the cancelation of this year’s Homowo celebrations on Monday, August 10 2020 have been arrested.

The arrest comes after some 300 youth armed with bottles, stones and other weapons took to the streets of Accra to demonstrate against the directive for the ban on Homowo festival celebration this year as the decision did not go down well with some of the youth.

All arrested persons are in police custody and assisting with investigations.
