Ejura disturbance: 3-member committee presents report to Interior Minister

The Ministerial Committee charged to probe the chaos at Ejura in the Ashanti Region on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, has submitted its findings to the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery.

The three-member committee made the presentation at the conference room of the Interior Ministry on Tuesday, July 27, 2021 after holding two weeks of public hearing.

The Chairman of the Committee, Justice George Kingsley Koomson during the presentation of the report said “I want to let you know that we attached serious importance to the work and dedicated ourselves to all issues with meticulous attention and details. Having assured ourselves after listening to 22 witnesses and reviewed volumes of documents including audio and videos, we have come with our findings and proffered some recommendations. And we hope the government through your good self [Interior Minister] will give a good ear to them and try to accept and implement them.”

President Akufo-Addo ordered Interior Minister Ambrose Dery to conduct a Public Inquiry into the circumstances that led to the Ejura killings.

Two people were shot dead while six others sustained various degrees of injuries at Ejura after security officers allegedly opened fire on angry youth protesting the murder of social activist Muhammed Ibrahim popularly known as Kaaka.

This comes after an activist of the #FixTheCountry movement, Ibrahim Mohammed, alias Kaaka was killed by unknown assailants for his advocacy at Ejura Sekyeredumase.

He is said to have had his head clubbed in his home Friday night by the assailants until he became unconscious and was rushed to the Ejura Government Hospital. He was later transferred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi where he died Monday afternoon.
