The national youth wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is appealing to the youth of Ejura to calm down over the murder of Ibrahim Mohammed aka Kaaka and the death of two protesters in the area.
“‘At the outset, we condemn in no uncertain terms the alleged mob attack that led to the untimely death of Kaaka and also the use of disproportionate force by the joint security force against the rampaging youth in Ejura.
“We sincerely sympathize with the families of the deceased and pray that the good Lord comfort and strengthen them in the difficult times they find themselves, the party National Youth Organiser, Henry Nana Boakye, said in a press release.
He said as agonizing and regrettable as the death of these three individuals are, the youth wing, in all humility, appeals to the youth in Ejura to calm down and tread a path that engenders peace, love and unity to honor the memories of the dead.
“As youth, we hold the key to the future of our great nation and we cannot jeopardise this great task by resorting to instant retaliation and violence which threatens the peaceful coexistence in our country.
“We welcome and support the directive from H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to the Minister of Interior, Hon. Ambrose Dery, MP, to immediately conduct Public Inquiry into the circumstances that led to the unfortunate occurrences on Tuesday, 29th June, 2021,” he added.
He called on the police to expedite investigations into the death of Kaaka and serve justice to him and the bereaved family by bringing the perpetrators to book.
“That said, it is deeply worrying that the opposition NDC seeks to use these very unfortunate and tragic occurrences as an opportunity to undermine the peace and progress we have collectively attained in almost 30 years of our democracy, admired and spoken about in the Sub-Region.
”As citizens of Ghana and as youth, it is our duty to denounce and condemn such statements which rather weakens our strength as a nation in fighting atrocious acts,” Mr. Boakye stressed.
