A final year pharmacy student at the University of Ghana, Legon was detained Wednesday at the Korle Bu Police station after he stalked the First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo with a placard protesting the failure of government to open the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC).

The First Lady was delivering a speech at the sod cutting ceremony for the construction of a one-storey Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH) in Accra.

The 25-year-old man, Mr Reginald Sekyi-Brown was arrested after he walked from the audience holding a placard with the inscription “#OPEN UGMC NOW” and stood beside the First Lady.

Mr Sakyi-Brown was then approached by a police officer to move away but he did not budge.

Attempts by the police to get him to leave his position failed as he resisted their moves to move him from where he stood.

The police then reportedly applied force by pushing him from the scene to the entrance of the children’s ward.

At the entrance, he was interrogated for a few minutes before he was taken away to the police station.

He has since been granted a police inquiry bail pending further investigations.
