National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi, led a group of protesters chanting death onto President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

According to the lyrics of their chant, a 30-seconds portion, that has been shared on social networks, the protesters are beseeching God to take the life of the President because he is destroying the nation.

The group were part of the two-day Arise Ghana demonstration that ended on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 with a march from El-Wak Sports Stadium to Parliament.

Part of the chant went as follows: “He is destroying the country, he is destroying the country, he is destroying the country, kill Nana Addo for us.

“Kill Nana Addo for us, O God, kill Nana Addo for us. He is destroying the country, he is destroying the country, he is destroying the country, kill Nana Addo for us.”

The Arise Ghana protests started on June 28 but was marred with clashes resulting from police firing tear gas, rubber bullets and deploying water cannons after some protesters allegedly pelted them with stones.

A number of casualties were reported on both sides – the Police reported that 12 of their men were injured – whiles 29 perpetrators have since been arrested.
