Economic Fighters League Denied Permission to hold vigil for the lynched Akua Dente.

A planned vigil organised by the pressure group, Economic Fighters League (EFL) cannot hold today, August 8 as Police refused to grant them permission.

The vigil was planned to honour the memory of the late Ekua Dente who was accused of witchcraft and lynched in broad day light at Kafaba in the Savannah Region.

According to the pressure group, they have served notice to the Police authorities on July 28 via Ghana Post and the letters were delivered to them on August 1.

However, leadership of the EFL was only invited yesterday, August 7 at about 4:30pm to sit with the Accra Police Command to discuss the planned vigil.

The outcome of the meeting could not be in favor of the EFL as they are denied the right to hold the vigil.

In a letter from the Police authorities and signed by Greater Accra Deputy Regional Commander, E.A Sakyi, the vigil could not be hold because it is against measures put in place to counter the spread of COVID-19.
