Saturday, 6th November 2021

The family of Ibrahim Mohammed aka Kaaka is up in arms with the government following rumours that the Athorney General is planning to discontinue the criminal charges against two of the three suspects.

According to spokesperson to the family Mr. Rafiu Mohammed, there are circulating rumours in Ejura suggesting that the Athorney General was preparing a nolle prosequi on the two bodyguards of former MCE who were arrested in connection with the murder of Kaaka.

In a statement released yesterday, the family noted that, there were allegation that the brother of Kaaka who was arrested had confessed to killing Kaaka. Rafiu said this non varifiable information cannot be true. He said, Baba Iddi had all this while maintained that he had no knowledge about the attack on Kaaka and his subsequent death.

Rafiu stated in the press release that such false information are intended to cause public disaffection and called on the general public to ignore the same

He said the family was worried that for over 120 days, Baba Iddi has been held in police custody without proper prosecution. They were sure if he is put to trial, Iddi will be able to establish his innocence.

They noted that the Ejura Ministerial Committee indicted some Government officials for attempting to mislead the committee. This the family is of the opinion that should be a cause for concern.

It will be recalled that, Kaaka, a social activist based in Ejura in the Ashanti region was attacked in June this year by unidentified men. He died at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital after two days admission. Youth in Ejura accused the MCE who had earlier warned Kaaka to stop his activism.
