“Since we started this operation, we’ve recorded just one incident and even that was not a slap. The Military Man involved has been sent back to the Barracks and I have ordered the Military Police to investigate the issue,” Brigadier Nsiah told the press

The Senior Military Officer noted that God hates lying and therefore cautioned Ghanaians against painting a bad picture of the military.
