FixTheCountry activist was killed for making government unpopular.
The #FixTheCountry Campaigners and Economic Fighters League are accusing people connected to Mohammed Bamba, the MCE for Ejura Sekyeredumase, of masterminding the suspected murder of one of their members, Mohammed Kaaka Ibrahim.
They’ve given notice that they’ll file a petition with the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to investigate and prosecute the criminals.
Ibrahim Kaaka died on Saturday morning after sustaining a head injury in an assault in Ejura.
Mohammed’s head injury was serious, with internal bleeding, according to Dr. Mensah Manye of the Ejura Government Hospital.
The victim was assaulted by two perpetrators who have yet to be apprehended by the police.
Hardi Yakubu, Fighter-General of the Economic Fighters League, denounced the suspected death of Ibrahim Kaaka Mohammed during a Facebook live session in memory of the #FixTheCountry activist, characterizing it as a horrible act of oppression.
Let us remember that there are many others who are complicit in our brother’s murder while we grieve his loss.
During a Facebook live session in remembrance of the #FixTheCountry activist, Hardi Yakubu, Fighter-General of the Economic Fighters League, decried the probable killing of Ibrahim Kaaka Mohammed, describing it as a horrific act of tyranny.
While we mourn our brother’s death, let us remember that there are many others who are involved in his murder.
In a statement released, Oliver Barker-Vormawor, the convenor of the #FixTheCountry Campaign, regretted the murder of Ibrahim Kaaka Mohammed, pointing out that he was attacked by a crowd for his #FixTheCountry-related action.
According to him, Kaaka was assaulted on the same day that other #FixTheCountry convenors were detained in Accra on Friday, June 25, 2021.
Kaaka got audio messages about assassination attempts on his life. Indeed, there are audio recordings on which some people identified as the MCE for Ejura Sekyeredumase’s bodyguards can be heard stating that Kaaka’s actions on Facebook were making the ruling NPP unpopular in the region, and that whatever means necessary must be used to stop him,” he stated.
He stated that they had filed a formal complaint with the police, but that “no efforts had been made to interdict or even invite anybody for interrogation in connection with the homicidal attack.”
When JoyNews contacted Mohammed Bamba, the MCE for Sekyeredumase, he stated that if #FixTheCountry and the Economic Fighters League had any information tying Kaaka’s killing to the criminals, they should tell the police.
