The police have arrested the key suspects in the murder of Imoro Sherrif, the soldier who was killed at Taifa Ashiaman on March 4, 2023, after a week of a sustained intelligence-led operation.
The arrest was made solely on the basis of police intelligence, with no military involvement.
On March 10, Trooper Imoro Sherif was laid to rest.
According to sources, the soldier was returning from Taifa and on his way to his home in Ashaiman’s Zongo-Laka when he was attacked and stabbed to death by unknown assailants.
Despite the fact that he was carrying a laptop and other electronic devices, the attackers only took his iPhone.
Following the murder, soldiers invaded Ashaiman on Tuesday, brutalizing residents in the hope of apprehending the suspects.
Ghanaians have strongly condemned the soldiers’ invasion.
Amnesty International Ghana has also condemned the military action.
“Amnesty International Ghana is against all forms of violence and human rights abuses and condemns the violence meted out by the military on civilians. The military is to take a step back and allow the Ghana Police Service to conduct thorough investigations into the unfortunate killing of the soldier,” it said in a statement.
