The government will later today announce a 3-member committee that is expected to inquire into the sequence of events, crowd rioting, and crowd control methods following the killings at Ejura on June 29.

This comes on the heels of President Akufo-Ado’s order to the Interior Minister Ambrose Dery for the establishment of a Public Inquiry into the circumstances that led to the Ejura killings.

“The Interior Minister is to provide a detailed report from the Inquiry, with recommendations for appropriate action, within ten days, i.e., by 9th July 2021, to President Akufo-Addo,” a statement issued by the Director of Communications, Eugene Arhin said on Wednesday.

Two people on Tuesday were shot dead while six others sustained varying degrees of injuries at Ejura after police opened fire on angry youth protesting the murder of social activist Muhammed Ibrahim popularly known as Kaaka.

This comes after an activist of the #FixTheCountry movement, Ibrahim Mohammed, alias Kaaka was killed by unknown assailants for his advocacy at Ejura Sekyeredumase.

He is said to have had his head clubbed in his home Friday night by the assailants until he became unconscious and was rushed to the Ejura Government Hospital. He was later transferred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi where he died Monday afternoon.
