Kennedy Agyapong, Chair of Parliament’s Defence and Interior Committee, has stated that the Ashaiman Astroturf project will be named after the slain soldier.
He made the promise when the Committee paid a visit to the family of the slain soldier on Thursday, March 16, 2023, in Ashaiman.
“The project will be named after the young man,” he stated.
Imoro Sherrif, who was assassinated in Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region, was laid to rest on Thursday, March 9.
His body was transferred from the 37 Military Hospital mortuary to the Burma Camp cemetery in Accra.
A group of troops gathered at the cemetery to observe the burial of their late colleague, who was 21 years old.
On Saturday, March 4, Imoro Sherrif was brutally murdered.
He was discovered in a pool of blood near the Amania Hotel in Ashaiman, where he was stabbed to death.
On Tuesday, the Military High Command authorized an intelligence-led effort to find the perpetrators of the crime.
Many civilians reported being subjected to brutality during the operation.
Following the murder of Sherrif, the police made various arrests.
Between Thursday, March 9 and Sunday, March 12, the suspects, Safianu Musah, alias Dayorgu, Ibrahim Abdul Rakib, Samuel Tetteh, alias Wiper, Abubakar Sadick, alias Birdman, Yussif Mohammed, and Abdul Gafaru Abdul Karim, were arrested.
According to a statement published by the Ghana Police Service, they were apprehended at several locations in Ashaiman and its vicinity.
The arrests came after a week-long intelligence-led operation.
The Ashaiman Circuit Court has refused bail to six suspects detained for their alleged participation in the assassination of soldier Imoro Sheriff.
On Monday, March 13, they were denied bail after Prosecutor Supt. Sylvester Asare told the court that granting them bail would interfere with investigations.
In a statement made on March 12, police described the following events:
“On March 4, 2023, police received information that a male adult had been found dead at Ashiaman Taifa in the Greater Accra Region.
“A team of police officers went to the location and confirmed the incident.
“Police quickly initiated an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of the victim. Officers cordoned off the area and summoned the Police Crime Scene Unit to process the scene for forensic analysis.
