Traders at Roman Hill, a suburb of Kumasi, have
besieged the premises of the Ghana Revenue
Authority (GRA) office
in Ashtown in the Ashanti
Region, to protest the Authority’s decision to lock
up their shops.
According to Citi News’ Ashanti Regional
correspondent, Hawa Iddrisu, over 100 shops were
locked up by the GRA because traders have failed
to pay Value Added Tax (VAT) for the past two
years. She said the traders, who were clad in red
and black, were chanting war songs.

She said security personnel were later sent to the
area to restore calm. The traders reportedly
embarked on a similar exercise on Thursday.
