According to a source, Col. Agyeman has now been appointed as the Commanding Officer of the 64 Infantry Regiment of the Ghana Armed Forces.
It revealed that with his new position, the former director of operations will be moving from the Army headquarters where he was stationed before he was moved to the National security ministry.
The source revealed that Col. Agyeman’s new posting comes a day after the press release from the Minister of National Security Mr. Kan-Dapaah dated May 20, 2021.
The source went on to reveal that some people within the Military have started complaining about this new appointment.
