Some residents of Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region have been severely dealt with by Military men leading to the destruction and seizure of their mobile phones.
The soldiers were angered by what can be described as negligent and irresponsible behavior by some witnesses to a fatal accident who instead of helping to rescue the victims, rather pulled out their mobile phones to film the awkward scene.
An eyewitness explained that two persons on a motorbike veered off into the lane of an incoming vehicle loaded with alcoholic drinks.
One of the motorists was knocked down while the other run under the vehicle sparking fire. Immediately, there was an explosion which the rider got stuck and was wailing for help under the burning car.
This however attracted the residents to the scene without providing a helping hand to the victims. This also compelled the soldiers to seize those filming phones and others were smashed off.
