Mahama Calls on Akufo Addo to immediately de-escalate situations in Ejura after two were shot dead by Security Personnel


Former President John Mahama has called on President Akufo to as matter or urgency make sure situations at Ejura is De-escalated.

This call is coming at a time three persons have so far lost their lives at Ejura in the Ashanti Region.

Reacting to the disturbing developments, Mr Mahama said it’s sad to hear such a news and called on the President to investigate the matter and let the law take it due course to bring a lasting peace to the area.

In his release, the former President said

I add my voice to calls for calm following the shooting to death of two persons and the injury to many in Ejura today, following the murder of youth activist Ibrahim ‘Kaaka’ Mohammed. I have just seen a video of the firing of live ammunition into a crowd by persons wearing military attire, after the burial of the murdered youth activist. 

I urgently call on President Nana Akufo-Addo to initiate an immediate de-escalation of the situation in Ejura. There must be a very thorough investigation of both the murder of the youth activist and the security rules of engagement, which resulted in the shooting to death of the two others.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and the Ejura community.
