The four ringleaders arrested included, Salaami Abubakari, 36; Daniel Opare Oman,43; Edward Holm, 38 and Daniel Clottey, 41 years.
They were said to have led scores of people to allegedly block a road at Jamestown by burning car tyres, and creating a sense of fear an disorder.
A statement by the Acting Director-General, Public Affairs Directorate, Police Headquarters, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Kwesi Ofori, and obtained by Security Watch Africa (SWA) on Sunday, said: “Preliminary investigations suggest the unlawful protest was in response to the widely circulated list of potential Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCES).”
“The Police Administration strongly cautions any individual or group of persons who intend to unlawfully assemble and cause mayhem over the publication of the prospective MMDCEs list or any other matter, to immediately abandon such plans or face the law.
“We urge everyone to use due process to convey their grievances,” it stated.
