The 3-member Committee of Inquiry to investigate the circumstances that led to the shooting to death of two persons by the military at Ejura on June 29, is expected to begin its sittings from today, Tuesday, July 6, 2021.
The committee includes Justice George Kingsley Koomson, a justice of the Court of Appeal, Security Expert, Vladimir Antwi-Danso, and the Executive Director of Penplusbyte, Miss Juliet A. Amoah.
The committee is expected to complete its work within ten days and subsequently provide a detailed report from the inquiry, with recommendations for appropriate action by July 09, 2021.
President Akufo-Ado last Wednesday ordered Interior Minister Ambrose Dery to conduct a Public Inquiry into the circumstances that led to the Ejura killings.
Two people on Tuesday were shot dead while four others sustained various degrees of injuries at Ejura after security officers opened fire on angry youth protesting the murder of social activist Muhammed Ibrahim popularly known as Kaaka.
He is said to have had his head clubbed in his home Friday night by the assailants until he became unconscious and was rushed to the Ejura Government Hospital. He was later transferred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi where he died last week Monday afternoon.
