According to reports from Mepe, one of the Volta Region towns affected by flooding, the military, which was helping to transport relief supplies, has been ordered to return to their bases.

On Sunday, October 22, videos from the neighbourhood show soldiers loading their canoes back onto trucks for transportation.

The neighbourhood is among the eight or so districts that have been most severely impacted by the Volta River Authority's (VRA) spilling of the Akosombo and Kpong dams.

A broadcaster who was present when the alleged recall occurred explained in a tweet that it was caused by an alleged "order from above."

People affected by this humanitarian crisis started to wonder how the aid would get to their campsites, including the St. Kizito shelter, where about 1,500 of them were camped.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwah, a member of parliament, was present and voiced his displeasure with the situation.

Why are they doing this to us? We are also Ghanaians. We are human beings. I mean, nobody is a second-class citizen in this country. Why are they recalling the military? Why should they be doing that? I can't believe what is going on," he lamented to Naa Ashorkor.

He subsequently tweeted, "Who "above" has given orders to the military detachment helping us cross flood waters to immediately withdraw when the water levels haven't receded and when thousands of lives are at stake in camps across these waters? Who in government is behind this utter cruelty?"

Meanwhile, the North Tongu legislator has announced that he has fresh information and a new decision to reverse the order.

"I just received a call indicating that the order has been reversed and that the soldiers have been directed to return with their boats and resume duty," he tweeted.
