While the POGR did well on the day, their position was hopeless. First they were defending just Flagstaff House - symbolic because it was Nkrumahs residence but hardly strategic. By 8 am all key installations we’re in the hands of the rebels.

Second, Harley had outfoxed the POGR by choosing to stage the coup when the POGR carried out its exercises. The practice was to train at Shai Hills but leave their main weapons there and come back to Accra for the night. The road to Shai Hills was blocked on the morning of the 24th and Zanlerigu and others were rendered largely insignificant on the day. Yes they resisted until about 11 I. The morning until Kotoka, tired of their irrelevance, made it plain that an air strike was in the offing.

The POGR surrendered and all were taken into custody

Just adding my two cents
