"Kaaka did not give his life for this course. His life was taken away because of this course. I am sorry I made them believe this is a democracy that is committed to the course of justice. I am sorry I made them believe that if they took up this course, the country can change. Our democracy has lost a soul today. It has lost its shine by the death of Kaaka.
"To those who have committed this heinous crime, in order to dull the shine of so many people who have responded to the call to mobilize towards fixing of the nation, you will not win. Democracy is based on dialogue and confrontation of ideas, not violence".
These were the words of Oliver Barker Vormawor, a leading member of the "fix the country" campaign as he eulogises one of the most vociferous young citizens of the land, whose resolve to see his community become a better place for the living and generations unborn has led to his untimely death.
Popularly known as Macho Kaaka, Ibrahim Mohammed was mobbed and badly wounded by some unknown assailants on June 25, 2021 on his way home at 1:30 am. This happened days after he had received voice messages from persons believed to be bodyguards of the Ejura Sekyeredumase Municipal Chief Executive, warning him about how his activities were making the ruling party unpopular in the area.
With clubs and stones, Kaaka was subjected to severe torture that he would never recover from, nor continue his his social activism again. He died whilst on admission at the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, where he was receiving treatment for the past three days.
