The Military and the Arrested Citizens of Ashaiman

In an interview with Citi News, the representative for Ashaiman, Ernest Nogbey, reaffirmed this.

The MP claims that the remaining 34 people are still in military prison and being investigated for the weekend murder of a young soldier. Also, he attested to seeing the freed people.

150 people have been released out of the 184 people the military detained. The military has not yet freed around 34 of us, and they claim that they are only screening them.

“As a result, by the end of today [March 9], we will be aware of any screening results. The Ashaiman MP stated, “I just met with the 150, including their families, and defused the situation by assuring them that we would take control of the circumstance and also provide some leadership for them so that none of them should take the law into their own hands.

The lawmaker added that he would continue to advocate for the release of all detained citizens.

Following the assassination of a military officer, Trooper Sherriff Imoro, who was allegedly stabbed in the town on Saturday, March 4, 2023, the military brutalized citizens in Ashaiman on Tuesday, March 7, 2023, using helicopters and armored vehicles.

In a statement released on March 8th, the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) defended the abuse, claiming that the goal of the raid was to find those responsible for the horrible crimes, not to exact revenge for the soldier’s death.

The GAF claimed that the swoop had been approved by its high leadership.

The military drill has been denounced by the Council for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).

Joseph Whittal, the Commissioner for Human Rights and Administrative Justice, responded to the incident by telling Joy News’ Blessed Sogah that the drill failed the test for an intelligence-led operation and that the military behaved improperly.
