Leading member of pressure group Occupy Ghana, Ace Anan Ankomah has sounded a strong word of caution to Ghanaians within areas affected by the lockdown to avoid tempting military personals deployed to ensure compliance or risk being slapped.

In a post on his Facebook page sighted by, the legal practitioner while admitting that instructions may have been given to the officers not to assault citizens, added it does not prevent the security officers from meting out some slaps to anyone who may prove recalcitrant to the order.

Alluding to the story in a song by legendary Ghanaian highlife artist, Nana Ampadu titled ‘woyo woyo’, Mr Ankomah said people should leave the soldiers to perform their duties or risk being used as a 'scapegoat, sheep and dogs' just as Nana Ampadu stated in his song.

Check out his post below

The soldiers are instructed not to beat o. Ibe democracy we dey. But leave them alone. Before you decide to go and ‘tempt’ them, listen to Nana Ampadu’s song, ‘Woyo Woyo’.

It is about what happened to the dog, sheep and goat, when they decided, out of curiosity, to go and ask ‘?seb?’ what food he eats now that he has accepted religion and didn’t shed blood anymore.

Oseb) led them into his bedroom, locked the door and explained to them that the rule was that he wouldn’t go around shedding blood. But it said nothing about what should happen if he was sitting his somewhere and three idiots came to tempt him.

No prizes for guess who became the meal. Leave the soldiers alone to do their work. Don’t go and be a dog, sheep or goat! Else wo p3 wo asotr) a, wobenya. Enjoy the music, not slaps. You can thank me later.
