Following the rioting in which some aggrieved youth in Ejura in the Sekyere Odumaase District in the Ashanti region, protested against the murder of the late social activist, Ibrahim Kaaka and in the process clashed with police, leading to three deaths and severe injuries, a number of Ghanaians have called for Justice for the victims.
The death report had since enraged Ghanaians, on and off social media, as the majority of them had called for Justice for the late Kaaka Anyaas Ibrahim Mohammed and the three people who were shot dead by the police and the military.
Among the number of Ghanaians who had been clamoring for Justice for the late Kaaka Ibrahim Mohammed and the other three protesters who were shot dead, was a Ghanaian music superstar, Stone Boy.
The hit maker had since released a new song with a titled "Outside" calling for Justice for the late social media activists, Macho Kaaka Anyaas Ibrahim Mohammed and the three other protesters who were shot dead in Ajura in the Sekyere Odumaase in the Ashanti region.
However, the respected singer had backed his song he called "outside"criticizing the political leadership for being a total disappointment in failing to deliver on their promise with a tweet.
In a series of tweets, the renowned musician took a swipe at political leadership in the country for letting down the youth and thus urged the young people to step out to express their frustration and keep pushing for right reforms to ensure development in the country, especially in their communities.
The celebrated Ghanaian music star Stone Boy expressed his displeasure at the disturbing trend of events in a series of tweets.
"Kaaka didn't have to die. He was only advocating for the improvement of the lives of his fellow citizens, including the very people who killed him. He was killed because he refused to be a spectator.His brethren in Ejura didn't have to be attacked."
"They were only venting their frustration. Yet, the men and women who have sworn an oath to protect us and serve us with integrity attacked them.
We need justice for Kaaka. We need to hold the police and military responsible for the loss of lives in Ejura. "
According to Stone Boy the citizenry, particularly the youth, have lost confidence in the political systems in the country.
"Since the system keeps frustrating Us the citizens. We will have no option than to go outside. We Only Go Outside to air our voices, seeking attention to the problems we face as citizens."
He further insisted that the police and the military officers should be held accountable for the lost of lives.
"They were only venting their frustration, yet the men and women who have sworn an oath to protect and serve us with integrity attacked them. We need justice for Kaaka. We need to hold the military and police responsible for the lost of lives in Ejura"
