The Ghana Police Service has arrested several protestors at the ongoing demonstration by pressure group, Arise Ghana.
In addition to the tear gas, police also responded to the protestors with their water cannons.
The organisers of the protest resolved to occupy the precincts of the Kwame Nkrumah Circle fountain over the disagreements with the Police.
The police had been insisting on enforcing the orders of the court for the protestors to move through Farisco through TUC to Independence Square.
The Ghana Police Service has condemned the attack, describing it as shameful.
