I’m a hairdresser not a military recruit – Woman in viral recruitment photos

Hairdresser Lydia Wiafe, 41, of Ejisu Apromase, in the Ashanti Region, has voiced worry and anxiety following the viral social media photographs of her dressed in military uniform.

Lydia Wiafe maintains she has never served in the Ghanaian Armed Forces and angrily rejects any involvement with the images.

Because of her age and her purported membership in the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), the extensively circulated photos provoked indignation.

She informed Ashanti Regional Correspondent Hafiz Tijani of Citi News that the event had severely damaged her mental health and interfered with her ability to support herself.

She urged the police and military to assist in identifying the individual or people who created the photographs.

“I suspect it was during one of our political rallies and events that this person took pictures of me and circulated them. A lot of people, including relatives, have been calling me and I am not able to work to even earn a living due to this despicable act.

“The person behind the creation and circulation of these pictures should be found and exposed. This obviously could have a negative impact on my life since I can be attacked by mistake. I am living in fear because the military could come after me. This is a clear case of falsehood against my person.

“The person behind this despicable act has dragged the name of the Ghana Armed Forces into the mud. I will appeal to the hierarchy of the military to ensure this person is brought to justice. I have been inundated with phone calls and I believe that when this person is found and punished, there will be finality to this matter so my name can rest too. I am comfortable living and working in this community. My children are also worried about this issue.”

Her neighbors in the Ashanti Region’s Ejisu Apromase have confirmed her account and are demanding justice.

“She cannot be enlisted into the Ghana Armed Forces and she is not a military officer. She has been a hairdresser since. She does not have the required educational background to even be enlisted in the military,” one resident said.

“The issue is a complex one. The leadership of the Ghana Armed Forces should investigate this matter and ensure that the people behind the circulated pictures are made to face the law. She has never been a military officer. Her highest education is Form 4, and that cannot qualify her,” another said.
