The Member of Parliament for Ashiaman Constituency in the Greater Accra region, Enerst Henry Norgbey has revealed that personnel from the Ghana Police Service have arrested a young lady suspected to be the girlfriend of the military officer killed in Ashiaman.
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM’s Midday news on March 7, 2023, the lawmaker explained that the arrest forms part of the police investigations to fish out the perpetrators of the deceased’s death.
“As I speak, I think one person has been arrested for questioning, a female who might have had a relationship with the victim, and so they’re doing very well (Police) they’re doing their best to come out with a verdict.
…that female was assumed to be the victim’s girlfriend. Speculations arise that probably the guy might have been with the lady at the moment the thing happened, or he might have left her place at the time the thing happened, and so you know as a security agency, she should have been the prime suspect to be called,” the MP said.
The lawmaker seized the platform and urged the resident to remain calm and indoors until peace is restored in the constituency.
“They should remain calm, they should not challenge the military, they should not entangle themselves in a brawl with the military… as we speak now when calm is restored, then they should go on with their normal duties. I’m pushing it on the floor of parliament so that the speaker will institute a probe into the issue,” he added.
Some military officers invaded Ashaiman in the early hours of Tuesday with brutality following the gruesome murder of a member of the Ghana Arm Forces (GAF).
As part of what the military described as a swoop solely targeted at the perpetrators, it disclosed that at least 184 individuals between the ages of 21 and 47 were arrested.
In the process, 29 slabs and 57 mini slabs suspected to be marijuana were also seized.
Meanwhile, officials of the GAF said the exercise carried out by its men was a swoop and had nothing to do with avenging the death of their late officer.
