The soldier in a viral video campaigning against the new Parliamentary complex has been sentenced to 90 days detention with hard labour in the guardroom.

A board of inquiry set up by the military hierarchy has also stripped Lance Corporal Wassah Lincoln Isaac of 2 Recce Squadron in Sunyani of his rank.

The military locked up the officer after a video of him speaking against the controversial new Parliamentary complex went viral early this month.

(ii) No officer or man shall do or say anything which –
(a) if seen or heard by any member of the public might reflect discredit on the Armed Forces or on any of its members or

At a hearing Tuesday inside the Gondar Barracks at Burma Camp Accra, chaired by some Commanding Officers, Lance Corporal Wassah was questioned.

The board came out with their judgement and found him guilty.
