Ashaiman: Defence Minister Warns Against Killing of Security Personnel

The Defence Minister of Ghana, Dominic Nitiwul, has issued a warning to the public regarding the killing of security personnel.

The Minister emphasized that the death of a young soldier, Sheriff Imoro, should be the last time a member of any of Ghana’s security agencies is killed by the very people they have sworn to protect.

The Defence Minister, along with members of the Defence and Interior Committee, visited Ashaiman to investigate the circumstances leading to the death of Sheriff Imoro and the subsequent brutality meted out to residents.

The Minister assured the family of the deceased soldier that the killers will face the full rigours of the law, and that the doors of the Ministry of Defence are open to the family.

The Minister also cautioned against seeking revenge and stated that justice will be served. He urged Ashaiman residents to live peacefully with the security services in the area and commended the Police and intelligence agencies for their swiftness in the arrest of the suspects.

The Defence Minister’s warning comes in the wake of the killing of security personnel by civilians, including the 2017 killing of army officer Major Mahama.

The Defence Minister’s visit to Ashaiman is an indication of the government’s commitment to ensuring that such incidents are not repeated.

The Defence Minister’s warning should serve as a wake-up call to the public to respect the rule of law and the role played by security personnel in protecting the country.

The killing of security personnel not only endangers the lives of those in uniform but also puts the lives of civilians at risk.

The Defence Minister’s warning is a timely reminder of the need to respect the rule of law and the role played by security personnel in protecting the country.

It is essential that civilians understand that the actions of security personnel are in the interest of the public, and any attack on security personnel is an attack on the safety and security of the entire country.

The government’s commitment to ensuring justice for the victims is a step in the right direction and should be supported by all.
