Security analyst, Adam Bonaa, has urged government to publish the Ejura Committee’s report on the killing of protesters after the death of social activist Macho Kaaka.
According to him, it is public knowledge that the committee’s work has concluded and the report submitted to government and as such must be published immediately.
Mr. Bonaa said the Ejura Committee report should have been published on Monday, September 13, 2021 but realized that the President was the Guest of Honor at the Ghana Bar Association (GBA) Conference in the Upper East Region, hence, he is hopeful the report will be published latest by Thursday or Friday.
“I would say better late than never. Also, I would urge government to expedite the publication of the findings,;they should publish it quickly. I am hoping to see who did what and the adequate compensation for the victims”.Adam Bonaa
Touching on the outcome of the report,;he further stressed that he is anticipating to see the report published in order to ascertain the compensation;to be paid to the families of the victims of the military high-handedness.
He was commenting on the back of the Ejura committee report;that has been submitted to the President and was expected to have been made public Monday, September 13, 2021.
High hopes for outcomes of report
Mr. Bonaa said because the committee’s work was televised countrywide,;individuals like himself has high hopes for the outcome of the committee’s work and thus advocated that compensations be paid to the families of those killed and injured as a result of the military engagement with the people of Ejura.
He further said a government delegation should meet the family of the victims in Ejura;to announce to them that the report on the killings is done and submitted to government to ease their pain.
“Well, I think so. I mean to assuage their pains,;it was good. Some of us advocated that post the committee,;the government will let the authorities and the powers that be to go there because at the end of the day, whether they receive you well or they didn’t receive you well, as far as I am concerned,;they have to engage the families”.Adam Bonaa
Police must provide support to the family
Mr Bonaa also asked the Police to provide psychological support for the victims and their families because in his opinion,;the shooting incident shouldn’t have happened.
“So, in order to assuage their pain,;the Police need to constantly engage them and when the report comes out,;detailing what took place,; they will find it in their hearts to forgive the Police and military”.Adam Bonaa
He therefore admonished the public to wait and see what the report is going to contain,;what compensations will be for the victims and their families,;who will be found culpable and the punishments that will be meted out to them.
Meanwhile the family of the slain social activist Ibrahim Anyass Mohammed,;commonly known as Macho Kaaka,;have petitioned the National Chief Imam Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharabutu;to press for justice for Kaaka and the people of Ejura.
