Ghanaian broadcaster Kwame Sefa Kayi, known widely as Chairman General has made a case against military intervention in the country’s governance following the recent military swoop at Ashaiman.

The celebrated journalist noted that looking at the level of brutality meted out to the residents, a coup d'état should never be the thought of any Ghanaian.

He warned people who have been backing calls for the military to take over the country due to the mismanagement of the country by successive governments to use the Ashaimam swoop as an eye-opener.

"Those who feel that a coup is a joke, this should give them a fair idea. Those who wake up and say we need a coup, I hope this will give them an indication that a coup is nothing good. It is not good!" he cautioned on his "Kokrokoo" morning show aired on a local radio station Peace FM.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, March 7, several innocent residents of Ashaiman, a suburb of Accra, were tortured by the military in an attempt to fish out the killers of their slain colleague.

The residents locked themselves up in their rooms following the invasion of military personnel in the town.

This was after some unknown persons in the town stabbed a military man, Imoro Sherif, to death in the community on Saturday, March 4.

Videos shared on social media captured moments of deep panic and fear as people seen on the streets were given lashes on their backs.
