The death of #FixTheCountry Protestor, Ibrahim Kaka has angered many youths in the country especially those living in Ejura, Ashanti Region. The young man was mobbed and killed by unknown people in Ejura for criticizing President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo-led government for not fixing a lot of problems in the country.
This murder led to the youths in the area rising up to protest against his death today, Tuesday, 29th June 2021. The Ghana Police Service and Ghana Armed Forces were then sent to the vicinity to ensure law and order as the youths have been accused of not obtaining permission before protesting.
The Military and the Police going to ensure peace and stability has resulted in about six people being shot. Out of these numbers, two people died on the spot as the rest has been sent to the hospital for treatment. Looking at the picture below, the youths are on the other side of the road but some military men are standing by the roadside.
There is one military man squatting down and pointing the gun towards someone or something as if he is in a battle with others targeting an enemy to kill. These made some Ghanaians to quiz whether this is how military men give warning shots among unarmed civilians. There is a high probability that it was not a warning shot that the two people in Ejura.
There are some Ghanaians who believe this is the same style the military men killed about 8 people during the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections. From where the cameraman was standing before capturing this photo, nothing shows that the military man was not targeting a human being to kill. This is not a warning shot posture.
Human rights activists need to rise up and speak against how the military has been killing civilians without thinking twice.
