The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has vowed to take disciplinary action against Ghanaian soldiers who molested innocent citizens in Wa, the Upper West Regional Capital.
GAF made this known in a statement signed by its Director of Public Relations, E. Aggrey-Quashie.
The statement indicated that the soldiers molested civilians without any provocation.
GAF described the soldiers’ conduct as unprofessional.
It would be recalled that a viral video on social media on Thursday, July 1, 2021, showed armed military officers brutalizing some residents of Wa, the Upper West Regional capital.
The residents were allegedly brutalized over a missing mobile phone.
The Wa incident comes just few days after soldiers opened fire on protesters at Ejura in the Ashanti Region, leading to the death of two people and injuries to four others.
GAF claimed internal disciplinary measures have been put in place.
