The soldiers are said to have beaten the mate, identified as Prince Kwaku Manu, on suspicion that he had removed a wooden board which they had used to construct a makeshift speed hump in front of their checkpoint at Brosase.
The speed hump was intended to reduce the generation of dust on an not tarred road on which the checkpoint was located.
The soldiers were engaged by the Forest Services Division of the Forestry Commission to check illegal chainsaw operators.
At 8 a.m. on Monday, January 26, 2015, Manu and his master, Kennedy Mensah, were carrying a musical system from Fawoman to Bekwai.
