Go to Ukraine if you want to fight – Former Ashaiman MP tells Military with conviction

Alfred Kwame Agbesi, a former Member of Parliament for the Ashaiman Constituency in Ghana’s National Democratic Congress, has denounced the military’s recent operation in Ashaiman on March 7th.

Agbesi likened the military swoop to a declaration of war on the people of Ashaiman, insisting that Ashaiman was not at war and anyone who wanted to fight a war should go to Ukraine.

He referenced President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s use of the Bible quotation “The Battle is the Lord’s” while in opposition, emphasizing that the people of Ashaiman were God’s children and that He would be their shield and armor.

Agbesi stressed that if anyone came to wage war on the people of Ashaiman, the battle would be for the Lord, and they would be protected under His guidance.

On March 7th, dozens of military officers stormed Ashaiman in response to the brutal murder of a young soldier. Videos shared on social media show the military officers assaulting residents, subjecting some to severe beatings.

In a statement released by the Ghana Armed Forces, they admitted authorizing the swoop which led to the arrest of 184 people and the seizure of suspected illegal drugs. However, they failed to apologize or commit to investigating the excesses that may have occurred during the operation.
