Several videos of either the police or the military assaulting residents have flooded social media, even though some have been alleged by the information ministry and the military to be fake.
Ghana military have acknowledged only one incident to be true which happened in Kasoa.
In some photos posted on Facebook, a Ghanaian registered nurse who goes by the name Cecilia Awinsongya has alleged that she was assaulted by a Ghanaian military man in Kumasi.
Today am very sad ,i don’t know what was my fault, for being in uniform and still assaulted by a military man today when I closed from work. Did the president really told the military men to come to Kumasi to beat us including health workers who r working tirelessly day and night risking the lives to save the lives of people. Pls friends and family pls help me to share this pictures to reach the media houses n the various stakeholders to fight for our rights,I don’t think military men have to put the laws into their hands to abuse people like common crimals.
