Families of victims of the Ejura disturbances that occurred early this year have petitioned parliament through the Member of Parliament, Mohammed Bawah Braimah, for a probe into the matter for justice to be served.
The family members include those of late social activist, Ibrahim Muhammed, Abdul Nasir Yussif, Muntala, and Mohammed Siraji. In their joint petition, they said they want Parliament to ensure that justice is served concerning events that led to the death of Ibrahim Muhammed, popularly known as Kaaka.
They also want Parliament to probe issues concerning the Ministerial Committee’s Report that looked into the disturbances in the area, leading to the loss of two lives and injuries to four people. The families are also calling on Parliament to look into issues of the welfare of the affected persons and the welfare of the people of Ejura in general.
Receiving the petition from the families, MP for the area, Mohammed Bawah Braimah, assured them that he will ensure the petition reaches the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin for the needed action.
