Campaign for justice for Kaaka heightens as Kojo Oppong Nkrumah joins the campaign

A 40-year-old Ghanaian dad of six has been killed without blinking by obscure people outside his home at Ejura in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. Ibrahim Muhammed, as he is likewise called, is believed to have been killed regarding his exercises in connection with the “Fix The Country” development. He was allegedly assaulted by a horde on Saturday, June 26, 2021, at about 1:30 am and was heard shouting for help however when anybody went to the scene, he was at that point lying oblivious.

He was immediately rushed to the Ejura Sekyeredumase District Hospital and later referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, as reported by Citinewsroom but he later gave up the ghost on Monday, June 28, 2021.His demise provoked the young people of the town who raged the police headquarters to request for justice. Their appearance at the police headquarters turned into a riot prompting military and police intercession. The mediation finished severely as military work force shot into the group killing two.

Since the news broke up, a lot of concerns has been raised by people including that of the formal president John Mahama. The most recent of it is that of the minister for information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah who during a press briefing this afternoon 30th June, 2021, demanded investigation into the crowd control by security officers. He said "The suspected murder of Ibrahim Muhammed popularly know as Kaaka and the subsequent death of two others coupled with the injuries of at least 3 more persons during youth porters after his burial are terribly unfortunate and condemnable. We commensurate with the victims, the families, the love ones and the people of Ejura. Our security agencies should be quick and clinical in getting into the bottom of this and other unresolved crimes. Now, while we understand that police investigation sometimes take a while, it does not instill confidence in the population if such acts go unresolved and unpunished quickly. So the police need to get to the bottom of this and justice must be done. Also a credible investigation needs to be conducted into the crowd rioting and crowd control incident of the 29th, June. This is necessary to bring to bring clarity to the sequence of event and to ensure that if any persons acted inappropriately, those persons are punished.

We have also read and seen videos this morning from youth groups and family members who are admonishing politicians and other social groups who want to be opportunistic about this sad incident to back off. Let us deal with the purely criminal matter and get justice done for Kaaka".
