The crowd gathered at 4th Dzorwulu Crescent and the surrounding neighbourhoods following news of an Electoral Commission facility for transmitting results.

The crowd is vowing to remain at the venue until the results are released and declared.

Reports say the crowd burnt tyres, but were pursued by security officers on the scene and the situation has been quelled.
