After being detained by the military following their arrest on Tuesday in connection with the Ashaiman incident, the other 34 suspects have now been freed.

According to Enerst Norgbey, the Ashaiman member of parliament, they were released on Thursday.

After a soldier named Sherrif Imoro was slain nearby last Saturday, the Military High Command authorized an operation that resulted in the capture of 184 suspects by the Ghana Armed Forces.

One day following the incident, on Wednesday, 150 of the 184 people who had been detained had been freed.

The remaining 34 were likewise made public yesterday.

They were all primarily young males when the military detained them in different Ashaiman suburbs.

Military Operation

Following the reported murder of a soldier, Sherif Imoro, last Saturday, several soldiers raided the neighborhoods of Ashaiman Official Town, Tulaku, and Taifa early on Tuesday, March 7, 2023.

The 21-year-old soldier was reportedly murdered by unknown assailants in Ashaiman, close to the Amanie Hotel.

According to other stories, a group attacked him and stabbed him.

One version claimed that the soldier was heading home.

Around dawn on Tuesday (March 7, 2023), some troops arrived in army trucks and buses for what they said was a sanctioned operation to fish out the supposed murders of their colleague.

The soldiers allegedly went door-to-door in the neighborhood, interrogating residents and ordering them to stay inside.

Some young people were detained during this procedure, beaten, and hauled away by the military.

Trooper Sheriff Imoro, a 21-year-old soldier who was killed in action, was buried in the military cemetery in Accra on Thursday (March 9, 2023) in accordance with Islamic tradition.
