We will sue military officers who shot into crowd - Family of victim in Ejura disturbance threatens

Family of the late Abdul Nasir Yusif, one of the two persons who died during the disturbances at Ejura in the Ashanti region has threatened to sue the military officers who shot into the crowd, killing the victims.

The family which had already expressed disappointment in the Ejura committee report stated that they will reject any compensation presented to them by the government.

According to them, all they need need from the government is justice for their family member who was taken from them cruelly.

In an interview with the brother of the deceased, Abdulai Abubakar, he revealed that the family will consult its lawyers on their next line of action.

"From the beginning we were calling for justice and we were not calling for anything else apart from justice. These people have to be brought to book. We want them to come out and tell us why.

"Was it by mistake? Was it intentional? Who sent them? Did they do it themselves? They need to explain to Ghanaians so that next time this thing won't happen again. That's our problem. We are saying if there's no justice, we will seek advice from our legal advisors, so they advice us on which measures to take", Abdulai Abubakar stated.
