Soldiers in Ghana on Thursday went on the rampage, beating up civilians after a mobile phone allegedly went missing in the north-western town of Wa.
A video of the incident has been widely shared on social media generating a lot of outrage.
The soldiers are seen in the viral video beating up residents on the streets of the town without any provocation.
Some of the victims were made to lie in an open gutter and slapped repeatedly.
Eyewitnesses have said that the soldiers claimed they were searching for a stolen mobile phone.
In a statement, the military High Command distanced itself from what it described as the unprofessional conduct of the soldiers and indicated that internal disciplinary measures had been initiated.
The incident comes days after security personnel clashed with civilians in Ejura, southern Ghana, resulting in the deaths of two people. (Text, excluding headline, courtesy BBC)
