The Director, Faculty of Academic Affairs & Research, Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre, Ghana, Professor Kwesi Aning, has described the final report released by the three-member committee put together to investigate the disturbances in Ejura in the Ashanti region as satisfactory and full of durable set of recommendations.
However, he said, the report has been blemished by its finding on the cause of the death of social media activist Ibrahim Anyass Mohammed, popularly known as Macho Kaaka.
According to the committee, Kaaka’s death was not linked to his social media activism.
“We, after careful examination of the evidence relating to the events preceding the death of Kaaka, are convinced that the evidence as testified to by Sadia Fuseini is more reasonably probable than the unsubstituted evidence of Abeewakas and Sahada Hudu which are more speculations.
“We accordingly find that the death of Kaaka was not directly linked to his social media activism. It is more probably a family feud. This is also supported by the testimony of Aminu Mohammed a resident of Ejura and friend of the late Kaaka,” the committee said.
Kaaka’s family has dismissed the report indicating that it is full of inaccuracies.
Nafiu Mohammed, brother of Kaaka said “Going through the document, you will realize that there are a lot of factual inaccuracies. But what can we do? It is human beings who sat before four individuals, and they came out with this, so we have to study it. But generally. I have problems with everything about the findings and recommendations.”
Speaking on this development in interview with Alfred Ocansey on the Sunrise show on 3FM Tuesday September 28, Prof Aning said “Probably this finding is one of the disturbing in otherwise satisfactory report and very durable set of recommendations.
“I don’t know the evidence that was adduced for them to arrive at this conclusion.”
