The Member of Parliament for Ejura Sekyedumase Muhammad Bawah Braimah has called on the Police to expedite action to unravel the perpetrators behind the murder of Ibrahim Mohammed alias Kaaka, a #FixTheCountry campaigner, and bring them to face the full rigors of the law, to restore the peace and security in Ejura –Sekyedumase.
Kaaka was attacked in the early hours of Saturday, 26th June 2021, which resulted in his unconsciousness and hospitalization.
He died while on admission on Sunday, June 28, 2021.
Mr. Braimah expressed his condolences to his family especially to his wife, children, and to all the people of Ejura –Sekyedumase.
He, however, entreated the youth not to take the law into their hands but to cooperate with the police by providing all the leads to the Police to expose criminals in the municipality.
“It is rather unfortunate that a citizen who brings to the fore the challenges of the municipality for redress is murdered in such a manner, he died a MATYR, and may the all mighty Allah grant him paradise,” the lawmaker said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the Ashanti Regional Police Command has arrested two suspects in connection with the murder.
The suspects were identified as Ibrahim Issaka “Anyass” and Fuseini Alhassan.
