Kaaka’s family rubbishes Ejura C’tee report, vows to push for justice

The family of the late Ibrahim Mohammed also known as Kaaka says it will not relent in its efforts to push for justice for its late kinsman, despite the report of the three Ministerial committee which investigated his death.

According to a family spokesman, the recommendations are nothing but a smokescreen meant to shield the real perpetrators behind the death of the social media activist and member of the fix the country campaigners.

Kaaka who was widely known for his activism and moves to highlight corrupt acts and bad governance in Ejura and beyond, was violently attacked by some hoodlums believed to be linked to the governing NPP.  The aftermath of that attack led to his hospitalisation where he gave up the ghost some few days after.

Irked by his death, the youth of the town embarked on a protest which turned bloody after armed military officers opened fire on the defenseless civilians.

Two individuals succumbed to death leading to the formation of a committee to probe the disturbances.

Among others, the committee contrary to wide held claims, said the death of the late Kaaka was not linked to his social media activism.

Some of its recommendations also included compensation packages to the family of Kaaka and the two others who perished in the protest, as well as other packages to the injured.

The Ejura-Sekyedumasi District Commander of Police, DSP Philip Kojo Hammond has also been recommended for transfer due to what has been described in the report as his incompetence in handling the riots.

But at a media briefing in Accra today, the family of the late Kaaka in rubbishing the recommendations said it will go all lengths to ensure justice is given to their deceased kinsman.

Family spokesperson, Nafiu Mohammed, who addressed the press questioned why the committee will rely solely on testimony by one Aminu Mohammed and conclude that Kaaka was murdered as a result of a family feud.

Power FM’s Princess Arita Anim who was at that press conference also reports that an intervention was made to the IGP, COP Dr George Akuffo Dampare, to reopen the case and get to the bottom of it.
