Assault Victim Master Bam Being  Carried into a Waiting Ambulance by Military Personnel.

19 April, 2016. The Chief of Staff (COS) Brig Gen Sampson K Adeti has ordered investigators to fast track investigations of the alleged brutality by three soldiers. He asked that the investigation process be sped up in order to bring the culprits to book if found guilty.

The incident has generated a lot of public outcry putting the image of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) into disrepute. This has also led to unsavory remarks by members of the public against the military.

Brig Gen Adeti explains issues to a group media men.In an interview with Joy TV, the Director of Public Relations of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF), Col Eric Aggrey Quarshie disclosed that, the military high command was making frantic effort to treat the victim in order to salvage the situation.

He also urged the public to be patient for the real issues to be dealt with. According to him, immediately this unfortunate news broke out, an aircraft was allocated to airlift the victim from Tamale to the 37 Military hospital. However, the pilot had to make a u-turn mid-way of the journey after he was informed the boy was already in the Nsawam General Hospital responding to medical treatment.

The military High Command had directed a group of medical team to convey the boy to the 37 Military hospital when news broke out that the boy was at the premises of joy Fm station. Upon arrival at joy news station, it was ideal that the boy had to be referred by doctors of the Nsawam hospital before the medical team of 37 Military Hospital could take over if necessary.
