The Ghana Armed Forces(GAF) has indicated that the viral video which captures a man slapping a military officer is not related to the coronavirus lockdown operations.
Speaking in an interview with Accra-based Asempa FM, the Director Of Public Affairs of GAF, Colonel Eric Aggrey Quarshie disclosed that there is no cause for alarm since the video is an old one.
“The video is not linked to lockdown operation at all; it is old. It happened last year,” he said.
The GAF Director of Public Affairs cited how he personally worked on one of the videos being circulated today in 2018 to buttress his point.
“There is a particular video trending but I worked on it in 2018, drew the attention of the Commanding Officer to it and those security personnel involved were taken on,” Colonel Quarshie stated.
He noted that the military men deployed for the lockdown operations have been ordered not to touch any civilian should they flout the lockdown rules.
