Imoro Sherrif, the soldier who was allegedly fatally stabbed in Taifa, an Ashaiman neighbourhood, has had his mortal remains laid to rest.
It was a difficult morning when military personnel gave their 21-year-old coworker his final walk, revealing their human side in photos that have surfaced online.
The 37 Military Hospital in Accra prepared the body for burial. After performing basic Islamic procedures, Sheik Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, the National Chief Imam, prayed for his soul.
Last Saturday, a mob was reported to have murdered the late Sherrif, a trumpet player with the Ghana Armed Forces Band stationed at Sunyani in the Bono Region.
