Parade protest

 

We Also Have The Right To Criticize You So Respect Our Rights. The Media Told.

Not long ago, there was a disturbance in Ejura, a suburb town in Kumasi. This invited armed military men shooting into the crowd that was protesting. This led to the death of two of the protesters. At the end of everything, four of them were injured. Following this, a committee was set up by the government to probe into the incident. This probing started yesterday and some security personnels have been questioned.

The chair of the three member committee during today's edition has noted that in as much as the media has the right criticize stakeholders, they (the media) should tolerate scrutiny from others. He noted this when Battalion Commander Lt Col Kwesi Ware Preprah said no Media house has informed him about the incident that happened in Ejura.


Lt Col Kwesi Ware Pepreh in further response noted that the aim of the military men was not to shoot at the crowd and kill. According to him, more lives would have been lost if the military went there to kill.

"The aim was not to kill, it was just unfortunate. If the aim was to kill then hundred people would have died". He added.

The chair of the committee, Justice Kingsley Koomson further urged the Ghana Armed Forces to use plastic bullet when handling such a crowd in the country.
