Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga has called on the military to maintain professionalism in keeping peace in the troubled Bawku - Northern Region
Bawku is caught up in a decades-long dispute between two rival communities that some experts worry could add to instability and allow jihadists opportunities to infiltrate Ghana.
The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has rejected claims that its personnel deployed to Bawku have killed seven locals.
“They can be ruthless when caught in the crossfire, but at the same time they are professionals, they are the ones that have the right to wield weapons and use them and so they have to be professional in the way they do their work,” Ayariga said on Assase radio
“So, they have to be professional, so when you heard me complaining, it is because at that moment I felt they had lost their professionalism and they need to be checking them,” he told the host Beatrice Adu.
