Head of Public Relations the Ghana Armed Forces, Colonel Eric Aggrey Quarshie has disclosed that the soldiers who acted as escorts at the traditional wedding ceremony between Medikal and Fella Makafui in their uniforms have been arrested pending investigations.
According to reports by Ghanaweb, Colonel Eric Aggrey Quarshie indicated that Military officers in uniform making appearance at private events without approval had become “one too many,” hence, the need to clamp it.

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.
