Meanwhile, the Aflao traditional council has issued a press release asking for the stop to military brutalities in his communities and other parts of the Volta Region.
“The Aflao Traditional Council, together with all the security agencies within Ketu South Municipality supported the Government in its implementation of the protocols to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and the records are there to prove that the MUSEC is on top of security in the municipality” part of the release read.
It continued that, “However, it should be noted that silence in the face of brutality being dished out to innocent citizens around the municipality only goes to embolden the aggressor. These sorts of abuse of power clearly goes to show that the detachment of security personnel operating in and around Aflao lack knowledge in civic duties in addition to their military training. Law abiding citizens’ have certain inalienable rights that the Constitution protects” it again said.
