Two ‘Chale Wote’ Festival Organisers; One Artist Arrested At Jamestown

Published

on

Two organizers of ‘Chale Wote’, the popular annual street art festival held at Jamestown in Accra, have been arrested by the Accra Central Police.

One of the artists for this year’s virtual event was also arrested.

The arrest took place on the evening of Saturday, August 21, 2021, outside the Ussher Fort at Jamestown, whiles the virtual event was taking place inside the fort.

Attempts by citinewsroom.com to speak to the Police have so far not been successful.

Nicholas Tetteh Wayo, one of the artists billed for the event who spoke to citinewsroom.com, said the police officers who carried out the arrest outside the Usher fort, caused damage to some machines, and scattered items arranged by food vendors who were getting ready to cash in on the event.

He said the police did not explain the reason for the arrest of the three persons who are being kept at the Accra Police station.

According to him, the police officers appear to be acting on some orders from a political figure.

“I was inside the Ussher Fort, and then one of the guys rushed in to inform me that the police were arresting some people outside, and by the time I got outside, they had already gone to the Police station, so we were at the police station to do everything we could, but they’re still keeping the three people.”

“It seems they [The Police] are receiving orders from somewhere; from the Mayor, I think. This is something we do every year, and it brings a lot of benefits to the nation and especially the people of Jamestown. People make some small money from it, but it seems now they’re preventing the people from making some money without any reason. The police carried out some breakages; some guys were doing performances, and food vendors were trying to sell, and they destroyed everything.”

“Three people were arrested. They are Mantse Ayikwei, Nii Ayitei, and then Kwaku Ananse, who’s one of the artists. They’re currently at the Central Police Station.
