The Western Regional Police Command has dragged three people before court over their ties with Russia’s Wagner mercenary group.
The three are being prosecuted after they were arrested in Diabene, Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.
The suspects were arrested following a public durbar organised by the youth, who were seen wearing and showing the flags of Wagner and Russia.
The suspects have been identified as Evans, 25, Michael Asiedu, 23, and Ernest Asiedu, 26.
Details emerging indicate that the suspects received sponsorship from Australia to organise the event.
The suspects allegedly mobilised about 20 youth to launch a military group in the Diabene community park.
However, the police arrested them following a tip-off.
The Assemblywoman of Fijai, Ramatu Ibrahim, has confirmed the incident.
“The police said after arrest and interrogation, the boys said they were doing a freedom demonstration, they said they were training on how to wage war against the government, so I asked how? They were hoisting different flags of different countries, and playing the national anthem.
“Their influential leader is abroad, and the leader in Ghana is 25 years old, after the police explained things to them, they realised that they didn’t know what they were in for. I learnt they were promised some money if their planned action becomes successful,” she said.
