In response to the weekend killing of a military man in Ashaiman, the Ghana Armed Forces send military men with fully loaded guns, Amour cars, trucks, and buses to Ashaiman Official Town in the Greater Accra Region early morning March 7, 2023.
“Several young individuals have been arrested, including people who were on their way to work, and many innocent citizens have been brutally attacked, even having their motorcycles wrecked.
Even those in the bathhouses were attacked by the troops who burst into people’s rooms.
More than six armored cars, three buses, six pickup trucks, and more than five trucks were all completely stocked with soldiers. Without this morning’s rain, we are unsure of what would have transpired ” an eyewitness said.
According to sources at Ashaiman, a soldier killed one person at the Ashaiman market during the COVID-19 lockdown and nothing happened. So the attack and subsequent killing of the soldier on Saturday was more like a retaliation by the gang.
Attempts to reach the security forces for their comments proved futile.
