Soldiers brutalize mechanics for ‘disobedience’

Four soldiers, including a Lieutenant from the 66 Artillery Regiment have allegedly assaulted two auto electricians in Ho for refusing to sell car spare parts to them.

Bright Korkoryi and Sedem Agbesi, both apprentices at Morkporkpor Enterprise were allegedly picked by the soldiers at about 1600 hours taken to the barracks and drilled them for four hours.

The victims claimed the Lieutenant requested a replacement of his “airflow metre” but was told to go and bring the old one to be sure of the type.

They said the Lieutenant went and only came back with three soldiers who picked them up for refusing to sell the item to him.

The victims who were issued medical forms by the Police in Ho on Monday morning, after making a report on their ordeal, told the Ghana News Agency that they were lashed with belts, made to roll on the floor and walked on their hands with legs up for hours.

They presented a picture to the GNA showing lacerations on the skin caused by lashes at their back.

Major Edward Sarpong Appiah, the Second-in-Command at the Artillery said he could not comment on the matter, but the Police said they were investigating the matter.
