Kaaka’s murder: Police ask for more time to complete investigations

Fuseini Alhassan, Idi Mohammed and Issaka Ibrahim are facing the court on charges of conspiracy to committing murder

The three accused persons linked to the murder of Ejura-based social activist Ibrahim Mohammed, known popularly as Kaaka, have been remanded again by the Asokwa District Court.

Fuseini Alhassan, Idi Mohammed and Issaka Ibrahim are facing the court on charges of conspiracy to committing murder.

Police prosecutor Chief Superintendent Kofi Blagodzi prayed the court for adjournment as he requested for more time to complete investigations.

The court presided over by Akua Adu Boahene granted the request and adjourned the case to 12 August 2021.

Ejurahene calls for calm 

Meanwhile, the chief of Ejura in the Ashanti Region Barima Osei Hwedie II on Wednesday appealed for calm as the protest-hit town awaits a report and recommendations by the Justice Kingsely Koomson Committee.

The Committee was tasked to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of two people during an encounter with protesters and armed security personnel on 29 June.

The incident sparked widespread disquiet among the general public, especially from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) who called for removal of top security chiefs in the municipality.

But speaking during a community engagement, Barima Hwedie II expressed confidence in the government to put matters to rest.

He also advised the youth to live peacefully and not to take the law into their own hands.


The civil unrest in Ejura erupted when Ibrahim Mohammed “Kaaka”, 45, was reportedly attacked by unknown people in the small hours of Sunday 27 June.

He died on Monday (28 June) at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, where he was receiving treatment.

At least two suspects have been arrested in connection with his murder.

Two suspects – Ibrahim Issaka and Fuseini Alhassan – were picked up on Monday evening in response to police intelligence.

Security personnel then fired into an angry crowd of youth in the town after the funeral of “Kaaka” on 29 June, killing Abdul Nasiw and Muntala Mohammed.
