Dominic Nitiwul, the Defence Minister, has issued a strong warning to the public about the killing of security personnel.
In a speech to the residents on Thursday, March 16, 2023, the Minister stated that the death of the young soldier, Sheriff Imoro, should be the last time a member of any of Ghana’s security agencies is killed by the very people they have sworn to protect.
“Let be the last time that men and women in uniform will be killed by the people they want to protect. Men and women in uniform – Ghana Armed Forces, Ghana Police, Immigration, all of them,” Mr. Nitiwul warned.
He also consoled the family for their loss and urged them not to seek vengeance for their relative’s death.
“…If it is not the will of God it will never happen. Those criminals would never have succeeded. God wanted it to happen that is why He allowed it to …Don’t take revenge as a family and as people of Ashaiman, the God of Ghana will answer for you. I know that it is difficult for all of us, but God has a way of defending the defenceless and Ghana will defend this family,” he said.
