150 of the 180 people arrested by the military in Ashaiman released, with the remaining 30 still in military custody


A total of 150 out of the 180 residents who were arrested by the military following its swoop in Ashaiman have been released, the Member of Parliament, Ernest Nogbey, has said.

The military swoop sanctioned by the high command led to the arrest of 184 individuals at Ashaiman on Tuesday, March 7, 2023, following the alleged killing of a soldier.

The MP who saw the released individuals added that the remaining 30 are still being held in military custody.


“Out of the 184 [detained by the military], 150 have been released. As we speak, we have about 34 yet to be released by the military, and they state that they are just screening them”.

“So by close of today [March 9] we will know whatever outcome may come from the screening. I just met with the 150 including their families and calmed the situation down and assured them that we are going to take charge of the situation and also provide some leadership for them so none of them should take the law into their hands,” the Ashaiman MP said.
