Military forces brutalize residents of Ashaiman Taifa in retaliation for Sherif Imoro’s death.
The military as we know them did not allow only the police service to investigate the matter. They took the law into their hands and subjected residents of the area to inhuman treatment. They came at a time when no one expected them. They came on a rainy morning when all residents were in their rooms to vent their anger on them. They broke into homes, dragged men out of their rooms, and subjected them to severe beatings.
The following are social media screenshots taken by myjoyonline.com showing the result of the military retaliatory attacks.
In other visuals, some residents were forced to roll on the ground in the muddy puddles created by the early morning rains.
Member of Parliament for Ashaiman, Ernest Norgbey confirmed this to Accra-based Starr FM. He called it an ‘unofficial curfew’.
