‘Whenever The Military Intervenes In The Affairs Of State, It Is Called ‘Coup D’etat’ – Prof. Yankah On Ejura Killings

Founder of the African University College of Communications (AUCC), Professor Kojo Yankah has said that the brutalities meted out to civilians in Ejura can be equated to ‘Coup d’etat’.

According to the former Professor, Whenever the military intervenes in the affairs of state, it is called a ‘coup d’etat’. It means law and order has broken down. It means a ‘blow to the state’; not necessarily a takeover of state, but a serious intervention.

In a Facebook post, Professor Yankah who was Minister of Information under the Rawlings administration said “The ‘Coup d’etat’ at Ejura. Whenever the military intervenes in the affairs of state, it is called a ‘coup d’etat’. It means law and order has broken down. It means a ‘blow to the state’; not necessarily a takeover of state, but a serious intervention.

“Did soldiers have to go to Ejura to stop demonstrators? Let alone to perform unprofessionally as seen on social media? “And were they ‘professional soldiers’ trained and paid by the state? Something is seriously wrong with Ghana’s national security.”
