President Nana Akufo-Addo has finally broken his silence on the death of two protestors in Ejura who were killed by the military while protesting against the murder of a social activist, Ibrahim Mohammed popularly known as Macho Kaaka.
The people of Ejura hit the streets yesterday to protest the murder of Kaaka, who is believed to have been killed for making the government unpopular. However, the police and soldiers who were there to enforce order, took the law into their hands and shoot into the unruly crowd, killing two and injuring many.
The president in a statement on Wednesday, directed the Interior Minister Ambrose Dery to conduct a public enquiry on what led to the death of two individuals and injuries to many at Ejura on Tuesday.
Akudo-Addo, who said he was “saddened” by development at Ejura, sent his condolences the bereaved families, and also wished those injured a speedy recovery.
