Kaaka’s family blacklist the Public hearing committee


The family of late lobbyist, Ibrahim ‘Kaaka’ Mohammed, will avoid the continuous public investigation into conditions that prompted the passing of two people in Ejura on Tuesday, June 29.

In a letter addressed to the Minister for Interior, the Committee of Inquiry and the Ejurahene, the family expressed that the occasions of the conference have left them less sure of the degree, center, genuine goal and surprisingly utility of the request.

Along these lines, the family expressed that since the extent of the Committee’s expressions of reference doesn’t identify with the conditions that prompted Kaaka’s homicide or internment, but instead the arrangement of the tactical work force and passing of two people on the day, they are least able to help the Committee to play out that order.

This comes after the Three-Member Committee led by George Kingsley Koomson, Justice of the Court of Appeal with, Security Expert, Dr Vladimir Antwi Danso and Juliet Amoah, Executive Director of Penplusbyte, entrusted to test the killings of youth protestors in Ejura, initiated its work.

The Committee has since Tuesday, questioned several witnesses including JoyNews journalist Erastus Asare Donkor, MCE of Ejura, Mohammed Salisu Bamba, the Ghana Armed Forces and Ghana Police Service, among others.

The family also stated that they are disappointed in the Committee’s haste to distance Kaaka from his #FixTheCountry online activism, “in connection with which he received several death threats, some of which are captured on video.”

“Our concern that the Committee’s attempts to portray the media’s highlighting of Kaaka’s affiliation with the #FixTheCountry call to action as somehow rash and misguided, do not tally with well documented and easily accessible evidence of Kaaka’s own self-description and online activism. “
