Ghanaian singer, Fameye has decried the state of insecurity in Ghana, stating that the country is only peaceful on paper.
Reacting to the shooting that led to the death of two people in Ejura in a series of Facebook posts, the 'Nothing I Get' singer questioned the non-violent tag that the country is associated with around the world as alluded to by Sarkodie.
He expressed his condolences to the people who lost their lives in the shooting incident by security personnel.
"We’ve been claiming the most peaceful since since yet violence each and every day ? Ghana can do better #Rip to all gone souls #ejuraprotest #standup together we stand divided we fall #stand4yourrigths," reads one of his posts.
"Ghana is only peaceful on paper and chats."
