Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC0 Peter Boama Otokunor has described the murder of the #Fixethcountry activists Ibrahim Kaaka Mohammed in Ejura as a state sponso-ed attack.
He noted that the country is saddled with impunity borne out of political intolerance, a development he said must stop.
In a tweet, Mr Otokunor said “I condemn in no uncertain terms the dastard killing of #FixTheCountry activist, Ibrahim “Kaaka” Mohammed.
“This culture of state sponsored murder and wanton impunity borne out political intolerance must die prematurely. We cannot allow this trend to continue. #justice4kaaka.”
His comments come following the gruesome murder of the Macho Kakaa in Ejura in the Ashanti Region over the weekend.
There was a violent clash among the youth of the area who were demonstrating in that town on Tuesday, June 29 following the murder.
This led to the death of two persons with four sustaining various degrees of injury. Former President John Dramani Mahama asked President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to take immediate steps of the situation in Ejura in the Ashanti Region.
Former President Mahama has added his voice to calls for calm in Ejura but demanded thorough investigations into the firing of live ammunition into the protesting crowd.
“I add my voice to calls for calm following the shooting to death of two persons and the injury to many in Ejura today, following the murder of youth activist Ibrahim ‘Kaaka’ Mohammed.
“I have just seen a video of the firing of live ammunition into a crowd by persons wearing military attire, after the burial of the murdered youth activist.
“I urgently call on President Nana Akufo-Addo to initiate an immediate de-escalation of the situation in Ejura. “There must be a very thorough investigation of both the murder of the youth activist and the security rules of engagement, which resulted in the shooting to death of the two others.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and the Ejura community.”
I condemn in no uncertain terms the dastard killing of #FixTheCountry activist, Ibrahim “Kaaka” Mohammed.
This culture of state sponsored murder and wanton impunity borne out political intolerance must die prematurely. We cannot allow this trend to continue.#justice4kaaka
