The Police in Takoradi have dispersed hundreds of garage and fitting shop owners around the Kokompe business district with canons of teargas.
Many are said to have gotten injured in their haste to flee the onslaught of the police.
It is not clear what might have necessitated the throwing of the teargas but a journalist in Takoradi, Charllote Lomotey, who witnessed the incident said, the demonstrators were only chanting war songs to draw attention to their plight when the police came out of nowhere to disperse them with the teargas.

They have therefore vowed to continue demonstrating until the authorities heed their requests.
A journalist on the scene, Charity Lomotey, told XYZ News the people are wielding placards to register their displeasure at the condition of the road.
