I’ve not visited Ejura shooting victims – Mahama disclaims trending video

 

 

 

 

Former President of Ghana John Dramani Mahama has denied ever visiting Ejura after the Tuesday shooting incident.

There were videos shared on various social media platforms suggesting that the former President had visited the four persons battling for their lives in Ejura after Soldiers opened fire at them in an attempt to disperse them.

 

 

But in a post shared on his social media pages,the former President denied ever visiting the victims after the shooting incident.

He said, “The video circulating of my visit to injured persons in a hospital is an old one, and has no link to current developments in Ejura”.

 

 

Background

Mohammed Ibrahim, a known member of the New Patriotic Party(NPP)and a recent activist against the failing of the NPP, was found badly beaten and left to his fate in front of his house. He later died in hospital, provoking massive protests in the town of Ejura.

Before his killing, Kaaka used the #FixTheCountry to expose ills and lack of government action in the Municipality of Ejura Sekyeredumase.

 

 

 

He had allegedly received threats from persons suspected to be aligned to the NPP and loyal to the current Municipal Chief Executive(MCE), who was at the receiving end of Mr Kaaka’s criticism and activism on social media.

After his burial, the youth of Ejura hit the street to protest his death and to also drum home the need for the President to remove the Municipal Chief Executive but they were met with open fire by Soldiers who had been sent there to calm them down leading to the death of two persons and several others injured.
