The Dagomba Chief, Alhaji Omar Hussein has charged the Committee probing the incidents leading to the death of two persons during a youth demonstration at Ejura on Tuesday, June 29, to carry out their mandate fairly.

Speaking on his behalf, when he took his turn to testify before the Committee, Monday, Alhaji Omar Hussein’s Linguist, Abdul Wahab Alhassan, stressed that President Akufo-Addo ordered for a Committee of Inquiry to ensure that the truth is revealed and perpetrators brought to book.

Thus, it is important for the members of the Committee to dutifully undertake the task to make sure that justice is served honestly.

“You are all people in authority so whatever you will say will be taken by all Ghanaians. So, be careful not to disgrace President Akufo-Addo, don’t disgrace yourselves as well, and don’t disgrace the country,” he urged.

The Chief was however optimistic that the final decision of the three-member Committee will bring peace to the people of Ejura.

“Whatever you will do to bring peace to the whole Ghana, Ashanti Region, and Ejura for that matter, you have the mandate,” he stressed.

A three-member Committee has been set up after President Akufo-Addo gave the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery 10 days to investigate circumstances leading to a clash between Police and Military personnel in Ejura on June 29, which resulted in the death of two persons. The Committee is also required to submit a report with recommendations.

The deceased met their untimely death while demonstrating against the murder of their colleague, Ibrahim Mohammed, also known as, Kaaka which had occurred two days before the disturbance.

The Committee is chaired by George Kingsley Koomson, Justice of the Court of Appeal, Security Expert, Dr Vladimir Antwi Danso, Juliet Amoah, Executive Director of Penplusbyte, a civil society organisation.
