Some persons who support the 'New Force movement', have gathered outside the Kaneshie District Court in a show of solidarity for the spokesperson of the group, Shalimar Abbusi, who is facing charges of allegedly acquiring a student permit in Ghana through false declarations.

Abbusi, a Belgian national, was placed in lawful custody by the court on Friday, December 8, 2023, following her arraignment by the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS).

The supporters, adorned in black and red colours, displayed placards and chanted slogans in support of Shalimar Abbusi and the New Force's objectives.

Some signs bore messages such as "Free Shalimar" and "Justice for Shalimar," among others.

Protesters expressed their dismay over Abbusi's arrest. They say that her arrest was an attempt to silence the movement and stifle opposition.
