The Ghana Armed Forces, GAF has apologized to journalists and persons who were affected by its troops’ effort to clear some violent demonstrators.

It said the Military High Command has directed that the case be investigated to ensure that such unfortunate incidents do not recur in future. GAF said it received intelligence yesterday, that some civilians were demonstrating and moving towards Burma Camp.

In a statement signed by its Director of Public Relations, ColonelAggrey-Quashieit said a reconnaissance team was dispatched to confirm the report but they could not determine the intentions of the demonstrators.

According to the statement, on seeing the soldiers, the demonstrators who had no police permit to demonstrate became violent. The reconnaissance team called for reinforcement which came to stop the violent youth from causing any damage to military installations.

The Ghana Armed Forces indicated that to restrain the demonstrators, reasonable force had to be applied to remove them.

Thus, in the process, some of the demonstrators got injured. GAF said it later realized that some of the injured persons were journalists who were there to cover the event.
