Medikal and Fella Makafui’s wedding took place over the weekend.
And one thing we saw was a group of soldiers heavily guarding the newly-married couple.
Well, it has emerged that these soldiers have been arrested and they’ll be dealt with accordingly. Since it is illegal for soldiers to work at private ceremonies without permission.
This was made known by Head of Public Relations, Colonel Eric Aggrey Quarshie, in an interview with GhanaWeb.
He stated that the illegal practice of Military officers in uniform making an appearance at private events without approval from their superiors had become “one too many”, and hence the need to stop it before it gets out of hand.
Colonel Quarshie further remarked with concern that the practice was bringing the name of the reputable name of the Ghana Arm Forces in disrepute.
He also noted that personnel from the Ghana Armed Forces were not for hire to the rich and affluent in the society.
He stressed that the officers who had been picked up were being investigated and the appropriate sanction or otherwise would be carried out since the practice was illegal.
He added that the sanctions to be meted ranged from caution to even dismissal depending on the outcome of the investigations.
