According to the Police Administration, key suspects in the murder of Sheriff Imoro, an Ashaiman soldier, have been arrested. The Police said in a release on Friday that the individuals were apprehended as a result of an ongoing intelligence-led investigation.
“The Police after a week of sustained intelligence-led operation have arrested the key suspects involved in the murder of Imoro Sherrif, the soldier who was found dead at Taifa Ashiaman on 4th March, 2023”.
Recall that a young soldier was assassinated at Ashaiman Taifa on Saturday March 4, 2023. His passing, however, infuriated the military, which is why on Tuesday, March 7, in the early hours, some military officers invaded Ashaiman and brutalized some people in an effort to find his killers. Also, they removed a few residents to question them. As of Friday, the most of them have subsequently been released.
The MP for the area then condemned the act by the military men. According to him, although the killing of the soldier was a dastardly act, “we cannot take the laws into our hands whether we are lawmakers or security agencies.”
However, the Ghana Armed Forces says the operation was merely a swoop in a man-hunt for some criminals and not for vengeance. According to GAF, “the military operation, which was sanctioned by the Military High Command, was NOT to avenge the killing of the soldier but rather to fish out the perpetrators of the heinous crime.”
