Ejura killings: Implement recommendations to the letter – MP to Akufo-Addo

The Member of Parliament for Ejura Sekyedumase Bawa Braimah wants President Akufo-Addo to ensure that the recommendations by the Ministerial Committee which investigated the violence that claimed two lives and left others maimed in his constituency are implemented.

The committee aside asking for the dismissal of the MCE also asked for the commanding officer of the military personnel deployed to be punished.

Speaking to Kasapa News the MP questioned why officers who fired into the crowd have been shielded. He also wondered why the regional minister who ordered the security deployment is still at post.

Although he described as weak the sanctions recommended by the Ministerial Committee, he nonetheless believes locals would be appeased if those few recommendations are implemented to the letter.

“I will like to appeal to His Excellency the President to ensure that these recommendations are even implemented because he is fond of not implementing recommendations of committees because we all know that if the Ayawaso West Wuogon Commission report was implemented we wouldn’t have gotten to Ejura,” he said.

The Committee, comprising of  George Kingsley Koomson, Justice of the Court of Appeal, Security Expert, Dr Vladimir Antwi Danso and Juliet Amoah, Executive Director of Penplusbyte, a civil society organization held 12-days of public hearing to probe the matter.

Chairman of the Committee, Justice George Kingsley Koomson on Tuesday, July 27, submitted the report.
