The Ghana Armed Forces has “closed the case” in which a military officer was under investigation after his Kalyppo selfie went viral on social media.

The Public Affairs Director of the GAF, Col Aggrey Quarshie had earlier told that the alleged soldier is being investigated because he was in a military uniform without authorisation.

“We have seen a picture. And so we need to be sure if he is indeed a soldier or somebody who is impersonating. And then we will know the course of action. If he is a soldier, there are rules and regulations that govern the use of photographs and any other things that we use military accoutrements for.

“Once you are in a military uniform, you can’t display it to a third person without authorisation,” he said.

He said the soldier, if found culpable would be sanctioned.

Many believed the said soldier will be sanctioned or dismissed for apparently trying to tow a political line with his action.

But speaking with, Col Aggrey Quarshie said “the case is closed.”

He indicated that the said soldier is “back to his normal duties. The issue is resolved, everything is finished. So there is no issue.”

He, however, refused to give reasons why the soldier was set free, adding that “This is an internal armed forces matter so we are dealing with it internally.”

A picture of the NPP’s Presidential nominee sipping Kalyppo fruit juice which was meant to possibly mock Nana Akuffo Addo has interestingly started a social media challenge.

The challenge which is named ‘KalypoChallenge’ has caught on with a number of people believed to be pro-NPP.

People who are supporting the challenge take pictures of themselves while sipping Kalypo and post them on social media.

A Facebook page has been created to enhance the challenge. The page is called ‘Kalypo Movement for Nana.’
