Hundreds of residents of Dome-Faase in the Ga South Municipality have deserted their homes after armed soldiers stormed the community.
The personnel numbering over 300 besieged the town in search of some civilians who assaulted two soldiers during a land conflict.
The two soldiers were severely injured when they were attacked by the irate residents over land ownership.
One of the soldiers who identified himself as Clement Asare-Addo told JoyNews that warning shots had been fired with the hope of dispersing the agitated residents. However, this backfired.
The residents accused them of not having been officially assigned to that post.
He added that even after explaining to the leader of the group that they were not criminals, the group proceeded to beat them up.
A visit by JoyNews’ Roland Walker to the community today, revealed that only a few women and children have been left behind.
They said, all the men in the Dome Faase community have fled to surrounding villages following media reports of the incident.
Although, the soldiers refused to speak on record, there were seen storming individual homes in search of the culprits.
Meanwhile, some suspects are reported to have been rounded up in the early hours of today.
