Some military personnel have brutalised some residents in Wa in the Upper West Region over a missing phone.

The soldiers reportedly brutalised people on the streets at random whilst looking for the missing phone.

They allegedly seized mobile phones, tricycles, and other valuables belonging to the public.

Those injured in the attack included a worker at the Upper West Regional Coordinating Council, Cletus Awuni.

Cletus Awuni who sustained head injuries was initially rushed to the Wa Municipal Hospital but was rushed to the Upper West Regional Hospital.

Meanwhile, independent checks by GhanaXtra.Com indicate that a tricycle driver allegedly stole a mobile phone belonging to one of the military personnel leading to the attack by the soldiers.

The police have moved in to restore calm at the time of filing this report.
