Members of the GAF swarmed into the Greater Accra metropolis around dawn on March 7th.
The Military High Command authorized the military action, according to the GAF, “not to exact revenge for the soldier’s murder, but rather to fish out the culprits of the horrible crime.”

We cannot take the laws into our own hands, whether we are legislators or security agencies, said Ashaiman’s Member of Parliament (MP), Ernest Henry Norgbey.

“I will encourage to the people of Ghana to be respectful of people in uniform, it would help all of us,” he said before to the visit.
I won’t say anything else until the committee members and I have visited the location on Thursday and verified everything for ourselves.
