FixTheCountry conveners are demanding justice following the death of a social activist in Ejura in the Ashanti Region.

Forty-year-old, Kaaka Mohammed was attacked by two assailants yet to be arrested by the police. He was repeatedly struck in the head with objects until he lost consciousness. 

Mr Mohammed who suffered a head injury in the attack on Saturday dawn died at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Monday.

In a press release, the Conveners alleged that the deceased had been receiving threats from alleged bodyguards of the Ejura Sekyeredumase MCE who claimed Mr Mohammed’s activities on social media was making government unpopular in the area.

“In fact less than two weeks ago various individuals had gone to report Kaaka to the Ejura Police in order to get him to stop his work.”

“Instead of cautioning those individuals to refrain from intimidating and threatening Kaaka in the exercise of his constitutional rights as a citizen, the police rather issued Kaaka with a warning,” parts of the statement reads.

The FixTheCountry conveners stated that if Ghana is truly a democratic state, the police should leave no stone unturned in investigating and prosecuting the perpetrators whose actions have led to the death of the activist.
