Lawyer Elorm Ababio, known as Ama Governor, dedicated her first court appearance to defending protesters detained during a September 2023 demonstration. Recently admitted to the Bar after two prior denials, Ms. Ababio appeared before an Accra High Court, representing the activist group Democracy Hub and 34 individuals.

In April 2024, Democracy Hub and the 34 applicants filed to relist their human rights case against the Ghana Police Service, initially struck out for lack of prosecution.

The plaintiffs sued the Ghana Police Service and the Attorney-General, alleging unlawful arrest, torture, and detention during the #OccupyJulorbiHouse protest.

On April 9, 2024, Justice Barbara Tetteh-Charway struck out the case due to the absence of both parties.

Democracy Hub posted on X, celebrating Ama Governor’s court representation and her dedication to fellow protesters. Ama herself participated in the protest, an involvement that delayed her Bar admission.

“We are happy that Ama did not forget her fellow protesters and returned to represent them. This shows the purity of her spirit!” the post read.
