Protestors against the Ghana-US Defence Cooperation Agreement were locked out of Parliament on Friday when they attempted to enter.

The group calling itself Economic Fighters League had staged a peaceful walk to Parliament on Friday morning where legislators were looking at a possible ratification of the agreement but were prevented from entering the premises, by police stationed in Parliament House.

Protestors complained about being tossed from one place to another by security personnel and insisted their action is a peaceful one, and were unhappy with the manner in which they were being handled.

Members of Parliament from the Minority side who had red bans on came up to the gate and pleaded with the Police commander to allow the protestors in but did not allow it.

Some MPs had to insist that some members were their visitors before they were allowed into the premises of Parliament House.
