A member of the committee that probed the Ejura disturbances, Professor Vladimir Antwi Danso, has advised the family of the late Ibrahim Mohammed, alias Kaaka, to provide any information they have about his death to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service.
According to him, the criminal aspects of Kaaka’s death were not part of the committee’s work because it is a matter before the court, being handled by the CID.
The three-member committee was tasked to probe a protest that led to the death of two people with others injured in Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
The committee’s report has since been published despite a rejection of portions of its findings by the family.
In the 55-page document, the committee expressed doubt about the representations by one Abeewakas Umar, to the effect that Kaaka was killed as a result of his activism.
It also said it was convinced about the evidence of Sadia Fuseini because it was more “reasonably probable than the unsubstantiated evidence of Abeewakas.”
“We, accordingly, find that the death of “Kaaka” was not directly linked to his social media activism. It is more probably a family feud. This is also supported by the testimony of Aminu Mohammed, a resident of Ejura and a friend of the late Kaaka”, portions of the report read.
However, the family of the late Ibrahim Mohammed has said the report is fraught with factual inaccuracies.
According to them, the family has lived peacefully without any feud.
The brother of the late Kaaka, Nafiu Mohammed, who spoke on Eyewitness News on Monday [September 28, 2021] said, the findings and recommendations of the committee are completely problematic.
But Speaking to Citi News on Tuesday, [September 28, 2021] Professor Antwi-Danso said the committee did a good job.
‘We made it clear to them [Kaaka’s family] that we didn’t come to investigate his death and the media in Ghana made that point very clear and loud. The Terms of Reference for our work were post-Kaaka. So we had to start with Kaaka’s death definitely and our reference to him was always in response to the fact that his funeral generated something, and people who appeared before us gave evidence as to how he died which was not our concern.”
“So we advise them to go to the CID of the Ghana Police Service and tell them if they have any other information.”
