i am satisfy with Committee report – Ejurahene

The Chief of Ejura Barimah Osei Hwedie II has welcomed reports and recommendations by the three Member Ministerial Committee tasked to probe the disturbances in Ejura in the Ashanti Region.

He further expressed satisfaction with the report by the Committee of Inquiry.

The Chief noted that the recommendations by the committee which called for the structural expansion of the Ejura Police Station and an increase in personnel is apt.

The Ejura Committee report, which was released on Monday, September 27, 2021, among other things, recommended that the affected persons and families be properly compensated.

Speaking to this reporter in an exclusive interview on Tuesday, September 29, 2021, Barimah Osei Hwedie II commended the committee for what he described as ten solid recommendations.

He praised the government for seeing to the completion of the Committee’s work in a swift manner.

“Am particularly happy that the committee highlighted the need for additional police personnel in the Ejura-Sekyeredumase District as it has been our major headache,” he stated.

He disclosed that the Ejura Traditional Council had already planned to construct a Divisional Police Command prior to the riot, “and so therefore the Committee’s suggestion will push forth our agenda.”


Two people on June 30, 201 were confirmed dead following a clash between the youth of Ejura and security personnel over the death of social media activist Mohammed Ibrahim alias Kaaka.

The deceased were identified as Abdul Nasir Yussif, age 25, and Murtala Mohammed, aged 25.

Following the unfortunate incident, President, Nana Akufo-Addo, in July 2021 ordered the Interior Ministry to conduct a public inquiry to probe the disturbances in Ejura.

The presentation of the report followed the completion of work by the three-Member Committee Chaired by a Justice of the Court of Appeal, Justice George Kingsley Koomson.

After completion of work, the report was presented with findings and recommendations to the Interior Minister on July 27, 2021.

In the 55-page Ejura Committee’s report published by government on Monday, September 28, 2021, one of the ten recommendations is that the family of the two civilians who were shot dead by the military should be compensated.

“The Committee recommends adequate compensation for the families of the two deceased persons, namely, Abdul Nasir Yusif and Murtala Suraj Mohammed,” part of the Ejura Committee’s report said.
