You are right per storing away equipment

Of course the issue is that the POGR was created for Nkrumah! While the armed forces was to protect the nation POGR was Nkrumah's army. In his absence it had no reason to function so to speak. Of course the presumption was that if a coup took place the POGR was going to protect Nkrumah as part of the measures to crush the coup

In fact Kotoka admitted that when Harlley told him about the coup his first concern was that the POGR had the best weapons and his brigade was no match for it. However Harlley knew that the POGR was to carry out exercises in the week of 24th February. All he had to do was block the road to the Shai Hills and it was game over the Guard

The coup of February 24th was the asiest coup in our country as Harlley was a brilliant planner. Kotoka himself was stunned at how quickly the government fell. By 8 any resistance was over and the crowds were gathering at GBC. Virtually all CPP operatives were in prison and the only gap in the operation was Ocran who should have turned up at GBC around 2 am but got there around lunchtime


Contrary to this was the coup of January 13th which by 3pm almost failed

June 4th and December 31st succeeded by around 1pm
