About hundreds of Residents of Madina-Adenta began their planned demonstration over the numerous deaths on the Highway due to the uncompleted footbridges.
The residents staged an unplanned violent protest last Thursday after a student of WASS was knocked down on the Highway.
This sparked wild protest with residents blocking the road, burning tyres and even clashed with the police.
The government issued a statement that the footbridges on the road will be fixed within weeks.
Earlier on, the Police wanted to prevent the walk, saying it would be in breach of the Public Order Act because the organisers had not gone through the due process to secure the nod of the Police.
However, after some negotiations the demonstrators prevailed.
They began at West Africa High School – the deadly site where the latest victim, a teenage student of the school died last Thursday.
Some of the protesters wanted to march to Madina but police officers on duty never allowed them.
A police blockade allowed them to end at the SDA Junction – the junction where a 33-year-old woman was knocked down and killed some nine days ago.
