Call your soldiers to order - Denkyira Dev't Association warns Defence Minister

Leadership of Denkyira Development Association is calling on the Defence Minister, Dominic Nitiwul call military personnel deployed to the troubled town to order.

According to the Denkyira Development Association, the military contingent dispatched to restore order in the area have restored to physical assault of innocent residents.

Scores of youth in Boase, a mining community in the Upper West Denkyira District of the Central Region have been rounded up in a swoop by soldiers who have stormed the town following the killing of military captain, Captain Maxwell Mahama, by residents.

President of the association tells Abusua FM failure to call the soldiers to order may present an uncontrolled security situation in the area.

Joseph Barnor- Lokko is therefore appealing to traditional authorities in the area to add their voice to the call as the overbearing presence of the military team is making life uncomfortable for them.

Barnor- Lokkosaid, “the defence minister must caution his boys to desist from unleashing violence on our people, they are to maintain law and order.”

“Since their arrival here in the morning, they have been abusing every resident they find on the street and if care is not taking, the unthinkable may happen,” he warned.
