During the MediFella2020 traditional wedding ceremony which took place over the weekend, one of the early videos which made its way onto social media was the one which had many heavily built men storming the house of Medikal.
These same soldiers were seen at the ceremony grounds acting as bodyguards of the bride, groom and all their guests.
Apparently these men, who are paid with taxpayer’s money and have senior officers they report to failed to seek the proper permission and clearance before they decided to pick a side job.
Currently, news goonlingh.com is picking up on zionfelix.net indicates that the soldiers who have been arrested and pending investigations.
This revelation was made by the Head of Public Relations, Colonel Eric Aggrey Quarshie.
The report adds that Colonel Eric Aggrey Quarshie in the exclusive interview with GhanaWeb revealed that soldiers in uniforms acting as bodyguards at private events without approval had become “one too many” and “hence the need to clamp it”.
The full report published by GhanaWeb continues that;
“Colonel Quarshie further noted with concern that the practice was bringing the name of his outfit into disrepute and maintained that personnel from the Ghana Armed Forces were not for hire to the highest bidder.
He stressed that the officers who had been picked up were being investigated and the appropriate sanction or otherwise would be carried out since the practice was illegal.
He added that the sanctions to be meted ranged from caution to even dismissal depending on the outcome of the investigations.
