The visit is also to sympathize with the families of the two who lost their lives after the military opened fire at the protestors demanding justice over the death of Kaaka Ibrahim Mohammed.
The visit by the vice president comes following mounting pressure on the government over its decision to deploy soldiers at Ejura to quell a massive demonstration by the youth of the area.
The vice president paid a courtesy call on the chief of Ejura before visiting the families of the deceased and victims of Tuesday’s shooting incident.
Bawumia’s visit comes on the heels of a three-member committee formed by the Interior Minister to probe the Ejura disturbances.
The committed is chaired by Appeals Court judge, Justice Kingsley Koomson. Other members of the committee are Vladimir Antwi-Danso and Juliet Amoah. The committee has been given 10 days to finish its work and give the appropriate recommendation.
Meanwhile, the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah, has disclosed that he deployed the military to Ejura.
According to him, since he was made a regional minister in 2017 and reappointed in 2021, the military in the region has also assisted the police in maintaining law and order.
He further disclosed that he deployed the military based on intelligence that he received as the head of the Regional Security Council.
