GH@61: Soldiers shake Koforidua with fireworks
Military personnel from the 48 Regiment of the Ghana Armed Forces caused a stir among residents of New Juaben Municipality Monday night during a display of laser and fireworks to herald Ghana’s 61st Independence Anniversary which falls today.
Despite prior notice by the Ghana Police Service about the event across the country with a corresponding urge to the General Public not to be afraid, most residents were taken by surprise when they suddenly heard the sporadic blast from the exercise held at Jackson Park.
Curious residents came out from their homes to the venue of the event to catch a glimpse of what was happening. An angry resident ignorant of the event stormed the venue to question the Military the rationale behind the displays, an action which nearly enraged some of the military officers.
