Nana Akufo Addo has condemned the viral videos of the so-called police and soldiers brutalities aimed at civilians to enforce the lockdown rule. According to him, the videos are fake and the government will not sit down for the name of the armed forces to be disrespected.
Speaking at his 5th presidential Covid-19 speech televised live on Sunday, the President said those who are behind this bad attitude are unpatriotic.
“I am extremely disturbed by the actions of a few, unpatriotic persons, who are deliberately passing off and circulating old videos of alleged brutality by members of the security agencies, largely of foreign origin, and presenting them as though they were new incidents by Ghanaian security personnel, which have occurred during the course of this past week. It is sad, it is unfortunate, and it must end.”
“We should all be in this fight together, and there is nothing to be gained with widespread fabrication and distribution of such videos, whose sole aim is to create discontent and undermine the trust of the population in the men and women of our security services. Who gains from such conduct? Nobody in their right senses! The law enforcement agencies are determined to locate the originators of these anti-social acts.”
While condemning the use of excessive force, President Akufo-Addo said the Inspector General of Police and the Chief of Defence Staff of the Ghana Armed Forces had taken steps to investigate such incidents.
“They have given me the assurance that those found culpable will be sanctioned. The alleged wrongdoers have been withdrawn from the ongoing exercise.”
