GAF Discredits Report On “3 Soldiers Arrested For Robbery”

The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has discredited a report by The Chronicles Newspaper that the Amasaman Police have arrested three military men for robbing a Nigerian.

The GAF noted that the allegations of robbery have not yet been established against them.

It recounted that “from preliminary checks by the military police, the soldiers, one of whom has relatives in the area prone to robbers, claimed they monitored suspicious movements in a particular house while on a visit. They proceeded to the house and were ushered in willingly by an occupant.

“Upon entry, they noticed some Nigerians busily working on laptops. The leader of the group denied involvement in cyber fraud or any criminal activity but expressed readiness to report any such acts to the security service and therefore requested for the mobile number of one of the soldiers.

“The allegations that the soldiers scaled a wall to seize mobile phones made by the Nigerian and as to whether the soldiers really extorted monies have been refuted by the soldiers. Nonetheless, these allegations are being jointly investigated by the Military Police and Civil Police and the truth yet to be ascertained. “

It noted that it will not shield any soldier engaged in any criminal activity.

The GAF further urged the media to follow due process in ascertaining the veracity of claims.

“GAF, therefore, wishes to urge The Chronicle and other media partners that its doors are open for the necessary clarification to ensure a balanced reportage at all times”.
