Families of victims of Ejura violence petition parliament
On October 27, 2021, the family of Kaaka also petitioned the Police Intelligence & Police Professional Standards (PIPS) requesting an inquiry into allegations of police misconduct during the Ejura disturbances.
The families of the victims of the Ejura disturbances that occurred in June this year, have jointly petitioned parliament through the Member of Parliament for the area, Muhammed Bawah Braimah, to what they say, is to seek justice over the events that led to the loss of lives and injuries to four persons.
In their petition, they are asking that parliament probes issues concerning the report of the three-member committee that looked into the disturbances in the area, and to also look at issues of welfare for the affected persons.
“Whatever concerns that my constituents who have suffered this ordeal have, I will carry them across… I will dutifully carry their petition as their elected representative to the plenary of Parliament and present it to the Rt. Hon. Speaker, Alban Bagbin, and I’m optimistic that he will refer it to the appropriate committee for redress,” Muhammed Bawah Braimah, Member of Parliament for the Ejura Sekyeredumase constituency, who received the petition said.
The petitioning families include those of late social activist, Ibrahim Mohammed, popularly called Kaaka, Abdul Nasir Yussif Muntala and Mohammed Siraji.
On October 27, 2021, the family of Kaaka also petitioned the Police Intelligence & Police Professional Standards (PIPS) requesting an inquiry into allegations of police misconduct during the Ejura disturbances.
