Police in Berlin have arrested two Ghanaian aliens who were part of a demonstration against President John Mahama two days ago during his two-day state visit.
The two arrested illegal immigrants, according to starrFMonline.com sources, had no documents to support their stay in the European country.
Some of the demonstrators were pictured with placards taunting the President’s commitment to the fight against corruption in Ghana.
According to the Flagstaff House, however, those who demonstrated against the President were only 18 people.
“In a sharp contrast to the handful (exact count, 18 people) of opposition NPP supporters who were outside the Intercontinental Hotel in Berlin holding placards insulting the President of the Republic of Ghana, hundreds of patriotic, concerned and hardworking Ghanaians living in Germany on Tuesday evening met with President John Dramani Mahama as part of his State Visit to the Federal Republic of Germany,” a statement from the presidency said.
“The over three hundred Ghanaians who attended the Ghanaian Community Meeting to interact with the President included Ghanaian professional, traditional leaders, students, business executives, children of Ghanaians living in Germany some of who are now Germans of Ghanaian Origin and a number of friends of Ghana ,” the statement noted.
While in Germany, Mr Mahama met the Federal President Mr Joachim Gauck and Chancellor Angela Merkel Monday.
