The Foundation for Security and Development in Africa (FOSDA) has condemned the alleged brutality on the people of Nuaso in the Lower Manya District on Monday 22nd August 2022.

“We are alarmed by the report that the soldiers who accompanied Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) officials to the community to fix prepaid meters ended up brutalizing unarmed citizens, shooting at them and inflicting gunshot wounds on about 6 or more people.”

“The alleged act of the military personnel is an unacceptable abuse and misuse of their powers and service. FOSDA, therefore calls for an independent investigation into the allegation and offenders sanctioned,” the Executive Director for FOSDA, Theodora Anti demanded in a statement.

She continued “We call on the Government and the Minister for National Security to conduct investigations as soon as possible.”

According to her, FOSDA believes that an investigation is important to minimize such future abuses and misuse of the powers and services of the Security agencies.

“FOSDA intends to pursue this issue to a conclusive end,” Madam Theodora added.
