A man has been arrested on the premises of Parliament of Ghana for screaming ‘Drop That Chamber’.
The man arrested is no other than Ernesto Yeboah of the Convention People Party (CPP).
‘Drop That Chamber’ is a hashtag coined by Ghanaians to protest government’s decision to build a $200 new chamber for Parliament.
From the video video spotted by Ghsplash, the security personnel at the Parliament House had to struggle with Ernesto Yeboah before they could arrest him.
Ernesto was whisked away to the to the nearest Police station for questioning.
So Fighter @ernestoyeboah1 went to parliament and shouted from the top #DropThatChamber. This is how he was tackled and sent to the police station. This is a battle for the youth. We will rise against wasteful spending. @Bridget_Otoo @berlamundi @Nikkisamonas @ameyaw112 @kakra19 pic.twitter.com/npNfy1vust
