Johannesburg – Three former South African policemen have been arrested in Ghana, the Department of International Relations confirmed on Thursday.

Spokesperson Nelson Kgwete said he was not entirely sure what the charges against the three were or when exactly they had been detained.

"The matter is entirely in the Ghana officials' hands," Kgwete told News24.

According to international media reports, the officers – identified as Major Ahmed Shaik Hazis, Warrant officer Denver Dwayhe Naidu and Captain Mlungiseleli Jokani – were arrested on Sunday following reports they were training a group of men in armed and non-armed combat operations.

It was alleged the three had trained about 15 men in various military drills, including unarmed combat, weapons handling, VIP protection techniques and rapid response manoeuvres.
