It has emerged that the soldier who accompanied Ebony actually applied for a sick leave from work before embarking on the journey.
YEN.com.gh is learning that the soldier acted against the rules of the army, especially when he wore a uniform for an unofficial duty. The soldier, who we gather is an Air-force Lance Corporal, never informed his superiors of what or where is was going to be engaged with.
What YEN.com.gh is gathering is that the deceased soldier will be court marshaled and sentenced to 40 days in the military guardroom. This means the body of the deceased soldier will be detained for 40 days before being handed over to his family. Also, the bereaved family could be denied his benefits.
The fatal accident of the music star has been linked to a heap of sand which was stationed just at the road path where Ebony and her crew were plying. In an attempt to swerve the heap of sand, the Jeep carrying all three passengers crashed into a VIP bus leading to the immediate death of the singer.
So far, the bodies of Ebony, the soldier and another man are at Mankranso Hospital. As investigations are ongoing.
