Nafiu Mohammed, spokesperson for the family of social activist, Ibrahim Mohammed also known as Kaaka has expressed the family’s disappointment over some conclusions drawn by the three-member committee set up to probe the Ejura protest that led to the loss of two lives, in relation to Kaaka’s death.
According to him, the family is disappointed in the Justice Koomson Committee for suggesting that Kaaka’s death was due to a family feud and not his social media activism.
“Our main concern has to do with the issue of the Committee saying Kaaka’s death was probably not because of his social media activism but a family feud.
“So, we as a family are disappointed by the continuous attempt to put the blame on the family to create disaffection for the family and the insistence that Kaaka was killed by his own family.”Mr Nafiu Mohammed
Mr Mohammed revealed that that the family has been unfairly treated since the committee “has no basis for such conclusions”.
In response to his comments, Vladimir Antwi-Danso, a member of the Ejura Committee, noted that that there is no explanation for Kaaka’s family to confront the Committee.
Mr Antwi-Danso explained that the intended mandate of the committee was to address the issue of the Ejura protest that took place not Kaaka’s murderer. That notwithstanding, based on some submissions made by witnesses, the committee fulfilled its obligation in finding evidence to make its recommendations.

Additionally, Mr Atwi-Danso revealed that the family was made fully aware of the main duty of the Justice Koomson Committee.
“It was a reference point; they came and people were giving their opinion on why Kaaka was killed. So, once they brought that, our work was evidence finding, conclusion and recommendation. So, as they put this one as evidence, we need to record.
“Part of the family was saying this is what we saw and the other part said another. So, we said, with all the evidence that we gathered, it is possible to suggest that but that doesn’t mean the family killed him. We told them verbally that our work is not the work of the CID, and the media should be the one to tell them”.Mr Vladmir Atwi-Danso
The security analyst further questioned why Kaaka’s family will be “in confrontation with the Committee and for that matter the government?”
“Kaaka’s family’s anger should not be directed to the Committee. We made it clear to them”.Mr Vladmir Atwi-Danso
Additionally, Mr Antwi-Danso suggested that the media is to blame for the friction that exists between the late activist’s family and the ministerial committee.
“The media should set an agenda to help the country resolve issues. I don’t think we should pitch the committee against Kaaka’s family. In the first place, the Committee was not set up to go and find out who killed Kaaka”.Mr Vladmir Atwi-Danso
Justifying his stance, he disclosed that the committee found that the death of Kaaka “was not directly linked to his social media activism”. As such, it “does not impede the Crime Investigation Department from carrying out its responsibility in finding out the perpetrator behind Kaaka’s death”.
