Ghana Police Gives ‘Flimpsy’ Excuse As To Why They Fired And Killed Irate Youth At Ejura In The Ashanti Region

The Regional Police Command of the Ashanti Region has announced the commencement of investigations into the violent clash that occurred between the youth of Ejura and a combined team of police and soldiers that led to the death of two people and the injury of at least four others persons.

The youth took to the streets to protest the death of Kaaka Ibrahim Mohammed, also known as Macho Kaaka who died on Monday afternoon June 28, 2021 after a mob attack 3 days earlier.

And during the protests, the security officers who were called in to maintain peace and calm crashed with the protesting youth, shooting and killing two people in the process; whilst others also sustained various degrees of injuries.

The police in a statement said its preliminary investigation shows that following the burial of Ibrahim Mohammed at Mempeasem cemetery at Ejura on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, some irate youth blocked the main Ejura Atebubu road, thus, impeding traffic flow and the security moved in with military reinforcement to quell the situation but the irate youth charged on the security officers with all manner of implements including firearms, clubs, machetes, and stones.

Hence, in a bid to bring the situation under control, they fired shots to scare the crowd.
