The Director of Communications for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Ahiaggbah has criticized punishment meted out to some residents of Ashaiman by military personnel over the demise of their co-worker.
According to him, the killing of the young soldier is crude, however, it did not allow the Military to take the laws into their own hands.
“We must condemn the conduct of some military personnel circulating on social media, where they are brutalizing residents of Ashaiman for the crude murder of a soldier.
“Two wrongs don’t make a right. We are a country of laws; let’s allow the laws to work,” he tweeted on Tuesday, March 7.
