Akosombo Dam Spillage

The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has refuted reports suggesting the withdrawal of military personnel from Mepe in the Volta Region, where they were deployed for humanitarian relief operations following the spillage of the Akosmobo Dam.

These reports circulated in the media and on social media platforms. GAF firmly denied the accuracy of these claims, asserting that no orders had been given for the military personnel to withdraw from Mepe or any other affected communities.

GAF clarified that the relief operations, known as “Operation Boafo,” were being carried out in phases by the Ghana Navy’s Riverine Command and the 48 Engineer Regiment of the Army. The military remains committed to providing swift and equitable assistance to the affected individuals and communities, in collaboration with various stakeholders.

The statement from GAF confirmed that military personnel are still actively deployed in Mepe, Battor, Sogakope, Adidome, Aveyime, New Bakpa, Big Ada, Ada Foah, and surrounding areas, equipped with boats for their operations. They have rescued approximately 12,000 individuals since the start of their mission.

It’s worth noting that an earlier claim by the MP for North Tongu, Samuel Ablakwa, that the military personnel had left the area was later confirmed to be inaccurate, as the military remains on-site conducting relief efforts.
