Two protesters were shot dead and four others sustained injuries in a clash with security forces in the Ashanti Region on Wednesday.
Residents of the Ejura town gathered on Tuesday to protest the killing of Ibrahim “Kaaka” Mohammed, a young civil social activist and a member of the #FixTheCountry and social protest movement, who was beaten to death by unidentified people last Sunday.
Police and security officers intervened violently to quell the protest and two (2) people died in the clash.
Elder brother of one of the victims [Nasiru Yussif] who lost his life through the clash, Abdul Abubakar has made it known that they need justice.
Abubakar stated that although there were protest against the killing of Ibrahim Kaaka Mohammed but his younger brother Nasiru Yussif was not part of the protesters but was shot on that day when the military and police opened fire on the unarmed crowd.
He said that, his brother was with a group of media persons when the protests was ongoing and unfortunately he was shot by the security forces when he moved from where he was standing.
“My brother Nasiru Yussif was shot in the ribs and secondly shot in the head” said Abdul Abubakar.
He added that, for him, he has nothing to do because they have already lost their beloved, which has cost him and entire family but what the family is demanding is fair justice into killing of his innocent brother.
He appealed to the government and the security system to look into the matter to find any culprit who is involved in shooting.
