John Dramani Mahama, a former president, has expressed sympathy to the young soldier's family after his death at Ashaiman.

In a statement that was sent to the Ghana News Agency, the former president said: The fact that one of our soldiers passed away in Ashaiman at such a young age saddens me greatly.

"Lordina and I send our deepest condolences to his family and the officers and men of the Ghana Armed Forces, who are in mourning."

He said that as the former Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, he knew how the Force was affected by such unanticipated deaths.

However, he urged the Armed Forces to exercise restraint and consent to the use of due process to identify, apprehend, prosecute, and punish the criminals.

Evidently, many Ashaiman residents and workers are innocent of this heinous crime. The military unquestionable necessity, hence, abstain from meeting out extra-legal equity on them," Mr Mahama said.

"As a result of this unfolding death of a serving soldier, I also sympathize with the victims of the torture in Ashaiman."

Mr. Mahama prayed that "this dear country, as the Government and state institutions immediately step in to address this potentially inflammatory development between Ashaiman and the Ghana Armed Forces;" including providing appropriate compensation to all affected individuals.
