Former Deputy Minister for Communications under the erstwhile John Mahama administration, Felix Ofosu Kwakye has condemned the heavy deployment of soldiers to Dome Faase following a brutal assault on two personnel of the Armed Forces in the area on Tuesday, August 25.
The opposition Parliamentary Candidate for Abura Asebu Kwamankese constituency in the Central Region said in a social media post.
According to him, arresting perpetrators of the crime is the responsibility of the Police and not the soldiers.
Mr Felix added that he could not fathom why soldiers will be deployed for reprisal attacks in communities where their fellow officers were assaulted.
"It is not clear to me how we accept as a country, that soldiers be deployed to communities where some of their colleagues have been assaulted for reprisal attacks," Felix stated.
On August 25, more than one hundred armed soldiers were deployed to Dome Faase, a town in the Ga South Municipality following an attack, perpetrated by angry residents of the area on two of their colleagues who were believed to be on a legitimate assignment.
Meanwhile, the youth in the area have fled the town over fears of being dealt with ruthlessly.
