Corporal Osei Owusu, who is now Lieutenant Osei Owusu, was part of the 132 military officers, who graduated and were commissioned to become officers.

Director of Public Affarirs at the GAF Colonel Emmanuel Aggrey-Quarshie, is on record not to have commented on the outcome of the investigations into the 'kalyppo' matter.

He rather came out to say that the investigations were over and Osei Owusu was going about his official duties.

According to Col Aggrey-Quarshie,, the soldier breached sections of the military regulations to show political support which is not accepted in the military.
