“Whoever perpetrated the crime” (killing the military member) “shall face the full force of the law,” he continued.
Esther Senanu, an eyewitness, stated that “a military member was slain in the region and now the soldiers are travelling from home to house, hitting people. When they finally get to meet you, they tell you to enter. We kind of have a curfew.
Dr. Adam Bonaa, a security analyst, condemned the military for their actions, saying they should have let the Police look into how one of them was supposedly slain rather than enforcing the law themselves.
Dr. Bonaa suggested that the military’s course of action was incorrect.
