Police file injunction against Yvonne Nelson’s #DumsorMustStop vigil

The Ghana Police Service has filed an injunction motion in the High Court aiming to prevent Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson from carrying out her planned demonstration against unpredictable power supply, known as the ‘#DumsorMustStop’ vigil.

This decision comes just days after the Accra Regional Police Command requested the protest organizers to consider shifting the protest location.

The demonstration is scheduled for Saturday, May 25, 2024. According to the actress, the periodic power outage, known locally as ‘dumsor,’ is impacting her company.

In 2015, the actress planned a similar protest.


Yvonne Nelson and her team met with the Ghana Police Service days before to alert them of the planned protest, as required by law.

Following the discussion, the police objected the route offered by Yvonne Nelson’s team, arguing that the chosen endpoint — Revolution Square — is close to the Jubilee House, which is a security zone.

The police also expressed concern over the plan to halt the protest at midnight.

However, protest organizers disagreed, stating that the terminus was far from the Jubilee House and that there were no concerns with the protest’s conclusion time.

The police, under the Public Order Act, have filed an immediate motion to suspend the demonstration.

The case was set for a hearing on May 24, 2024.
