The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has described as inaccurate and malicious information that the body of the late LAC Vondee Atsu, who died in a motor accident together with the popular music artiste Ebony, has been detained till it serves a sentence passed by a supposed court martial.

The Ghana Armed Forces in a press statement expresses deep concern about such false publication which has gone viral on social media after the late Airman 203615 LAC Vondee Atsu Francis died in that tragic road traffic accident.

There are reports alleging that the GAF has taken some actions against the late LAC Vondee Atsu Francis among which is to detain his body.

Colonel E. Aggrey-Quashie, Director Public Relations for the GAF who signed the statement indicated that the publication is not only “false but demonstrates insensibility towards the emotions of the rank and file of GAF and the family of the deceased Airman.”

He however explained that the remains of the late LAC Vondee Atsu Francis was recovered on Friday afternoon to the 37 Military Hospital where the corpse was formally identified by the family in line with GAF Standard Operating Procedures.

He said, GAF owed a responsibility to the family of the deceased Airman to preserve and produce the remains for burial and funeral rites, adding that “all military personnel who get involved in accidents are first evacuated as soon as practicable irrespective of where the accident occurred.”

He said “Recent cases include the evacuation of the corpse of the Late Cpl Fletcher Carl who died in a road traffic accident on the Bolga – Bawku road, and the medical evacuation of officer cadets who were involved in a road traffic accident in the Volta Region. After the evacuation, investigations are conducted to among other things determine the circumstances that led to the accident with the view of putting measures in place to if possible avoid or minimize occurrence of similar incidents.”

The GAF also maintained that investigations were being conducted to unravel the full circumstances surrounding the recent sad incident, and expected that the public mourned and sympathized with the bereaved families and also respect their sensibilities instead of exacerbating their pain with such a fabricated story.

“The Military High Command takes this opportunity to extend their condolences to the bereaved families while wishing the injured a speedy recovery,” he said.
