Soldier who died with Ebony to face court-martial

The mortal remains of the military officer who died in a car crash with Ghanaian dancehall artiste Ebony, will face court-martial, credible sources at the Ghana Armed Forces have told 3news.com

According to the sources at the military high command, Francis Atisu Vondee of the Ghana Air force stationed at the Accra Air force Base in Burma Camp was not officially deployed for the bodyguard duties.

The officer, who was travelling with Ebony died when their Jeep crashed a VIP bus Thursday night on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway while returning to Accra from Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo Region.

Three of the four occupants – Ebony, Vondee and Ebony’s close friend known as Franky- died in the accident. Their driver however survived and is currently in critical condition in an undisclosed hospital.

Checks at the Ghana Armed Forces confirmed Vondee who was in a military uniform at the time of the accident, was not assigned to perform bodyguard duties, and that, he was doing “purely private and personal business”.

According to our sources at the military high command in Accra, investigations would be conducted into the matter and once it is established he was not officially sanctioned for bodyguard duties, his body would be court-martialed.

That is the body would be charged for being absent without leave (AWOL). That, the sources say, is in line with the laws and statutes governing the Ghana Army.

The sources said if found guilty of the charge, his family “could be denied his benefits” due him, including insurance packages.
