The military in Ghana often believe they are above the law. And in a sense they are, because when they break the law there are no repercussions for their actions.
We all recently saw some military officers assaulting young people who had only turned up to register to serve their country, and we heard nothing about what happened to those renegade soldiers.
And we’ve all heard similar stories, soldiers assaulting people even for flimsy reasons such as wearing any attire that looks like their uniforms.
With lack of accountability comes more atrocities, such as the one outlined painfully below.
A lady known as Cecilia Afrifa wrote on Facebook how a military officer stabbed her brother to death because the soldier wanted to steal his phone and he resisted.
Read what transpired below…
“My big brother Nana Yaw Owusu was called by his Muslim friends this salah to come and eat with them at Kasoa high tension, so he dressed up and left the house to go and eat with his friends.
They were all eating by the roadside when they were approached by 3 guys in military uniform saying they want to search them all and they allowed them to do their work, after searching them, nothing was found on them and one of the soldiers asked my brother to give him his phone and brother refused to give it to him.
Now my brother is dead and gone and we got to find out that yes this guy is a turn soldier but was on leave meaning he was not supposed to even wear the uniform but he was a thief in uniform. His family is pleading for mercy now but my family and I want justice for my brother.#JUSTICEFORNANAOWUSU.
Please you can help fight justice for him by shearing for the world to know how some of the military men are taking law of Ghana for cheap”
