Military and Police Clash with Ejura Youth, CYG releases a statement.
We are learning with dismay the killing of two (2) and injuring of other concerned youth and protestors by some police and military officers at Ejura this morning.
Concerned Youth of Ghana (CYG) condemns in no uncertain terms, the unethical and unprofessional conduct by these security officials.
It is sad to note that, security operatives supervising rampaging Ejura Sekyedumase youth, resorted to shooting live bullets to disperse the angry crowd.
We call on the Inspector-General of Police, James Oppong-Branch, Defence Minister Dominic Ntiwul, and Interior Minister Ambrose Dery to swiftly call their men to order before the situation degenerates.
The heightening level of murderous impunity, intolerance, and crime in Ghana is very unbecoming.
Murder of Ibrahim “Kaaka” Mohammed.
We have lost a fearless fighter.
We have lost a fearless soldier.
We have lost a true, concerned, and responsible youth at war.
Mohammed Ibrahim (popularly known as Kaaka) remained loyal and faithful till the end, when some heartless, coward assailants murdered him on Saturday, June 26, 2021.
To us, Ibrahim Mohammed is a HERO.
CYG sympathizes with the family, youth of Ejura, #FixTheCountry Movement, Economic Fighters League, and the youth of the Republic of Ghana.
Residents in the locality and the Family of Ibrahim Mohammed complained to the Police about threats on the life of their son for criticizing the government especially the MCE of Ejura.
Since the name of the MCE has been mentioned as a prime suspect, we call on President Akufo-Addo through the Regional Minister or Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development to immediately request the Municipal Chief Executive Officer of Ejura, Hon. Mohammed Salisu Bamba to step aside while this heinous crime is investigated.
The Youth of Ejura have lost trust in the Police and security operatives.
Concerned Youth of Ghana (CYG) respectfully appeal to the Chief Imam, Otumfour Osei Tutu (II), and other eminent Religious Leaders to lead the conflict resolution process.
Justice for Kaaka is non-negotiable.
