The Ashanti Regional Minister, Mr. Simon Osei Mensah has admitted ordering the deployment of soldiers from the 4th Infantry Battalion based in Kumasi to augment their police counterparts to restore order and peace at Ejura on the 29th of June this year.

This, he says, is based on intelligence he gathered as the Chairman of the Regional Security Council, REGSEC.

The Regional Minister explained that he took that unilateral decision in view of the circumstances to avert any possible disaster from what he described as an attack on the Police detail on the ground by the incensed youth.

Mr. Osei Mensah was giving testimony before the Ministerial Committee of Enquiry in Kumasi on Day One of its public hearing.
