The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has said in reference to a viral video depicting a road traffic accident involving some military personnel, that the personnel drawn from the Southern Command, were embarking on an operation (Operation Halt II), to stop illegal mining on some river bodies in parts of the Eastern Region.

The accident occurred on Wednesday 9 June 2022, along the Suhum – Anum Apapam Road when the military truck in which they were traveling suddenly developed a mechanical fault causing it to tip over.

 

About 16 military personnel sustained various degrees of injuries and were initially treated at Anum Apapam clinic before being evacuated to the 37 Military Hospital for further treatment.
