A Commander Ordered Military To Storm Parliamentary Chamber – Kan-Dapaah

National Security Minister-designate Kan Dapaah has revealed that the military invasion in Parliament on the eve of swearing-in of the 8th Parliament was ordered by a commander.

He told Parliament’s Appointment Committee during his vetting that the commander in his own wisdom thought things were going wrong and therefore had to send the military to the chamber.

He however noted that investigations are still ongoing.

“…It is a strange thing when you have a military team invade the parliamentary chamber. For whatever reason when I saw it, I was also alarmed and my colleagues in government was alarmed that it had happened. So, I did take the trouble to find out how it happened. It was that simple, somebody, a commander in his opinion thought that things were getting out of hand in the chamber and that he needed to go there to try to restore order.” he revealed

… So, I asked why? And what was his motivation for going there? I can only say this is something that shouldn’t have happened but no harm was caused to any member of parliament and let me agree with you that going forward this is not something we should encourage and hope that it doesn’t happen again.” He added.
