The youth of Garu and Tempane, in the Upper East Region, demanded the immediate and unconditional release of eight individuals on Tuesday, November 30th, 2023, claiming that they were unlawfully tortured, arrested, and kidnapped by military personnel.

In a press release, they stated that if these individuals are not returned to the community, all government institutions and workers in the two areas will go on strike starting Wednesday, November 1, 2023.

The incident in question began when a national security vehicle was attacked, leading to a crackdown by military personnel.

Over 200 residents of Garu and Tempane were reportedly subjected to beatings and arrests in the aftermath of the attack.

Sixteen young people from the area were detained; eight of the detainees were taken to Accra, the capital city, for further investigation.

According to the youth leader, Emmanuel B. Issaka, the arrest and transfer of the eight individuals were unlawful and carried out without due process.

He further noted that the detainees were subjected to torture and inhumane treatment during their arrest and subsequent detention.

Therefore, they demand justice and accountability from the authorities within 24 hours.
