The largest opposition political party in Ghana, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has staged another big street protests in the national capital, Accra, dubbed ‘March For Justice.’
The demonstration is to seek justice for the family of a social activist Ibrahim Mohammed (Kaaka) who was murdered by a mob last week.
Kaaka’s death sparked an angry protest at Ejura in the Ashanti region last Tuesday where a joint taskforce of police and military shot sporadically into the civilians, killing two.
6 others were injured in the process, sparking a national conversation on insecurity in the country.
President Akufo-Addo later instructed Minister for the Interior, Ambrose Dery, to inquire into the circumstances surrounding the shootings.
But the NDC believes the probe will not bring any difference, arguing that recommendations from similar probes in the past were rejected by the government after it indicted persons close to the corridors of power.
They are, for this reason, to present a petition to President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House this afternoon to reiterate their calls to get the president to protect the citizens of the country.
They will march from the Accra Mall, wielding placards displaying their concerns, through Cantonments to the presidency.
After submitting their petition, they will then march through the Ako Adjei interchange to Parliament where they will also present a petition to the leadership of the House.
