The Director General in charge of Public Relations of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF), Eric Aggrey Quarshie says a section of Ghanaians called to thank them for storming Ashaiman following the demise of one of their personnel.
Speaking at the Annual General Meeting and the National Public Relations and Communications Summit of the Institue of Public Relations on Thursday, March 23, he explained that a lot of things have been happening at Asahiman however the killing of the soldier Sherrif Imoro became the last straw that broke the camel’s back
He said “whatever happened in Ashaiman was not something somebody woke up one morning and said let us go to Ashaiman, so many things are taking place and our soldier dying became like the last straw that broke the camel’s back.
“Ashaiman, there are still sections that the Police cannot go and effect an arrest, they won’t dare. Somebody commits a crime and you can’t go there to even arrest the person and so we were tracking the event.”
He added “The number of calls that I have received and the institution has received, thanking us for the actions in Asahiman. People are asking when will [we] do that again.”
