The report of the Ejura Committee, which was released on Monday, recommended that the affected people and their families be compensated, without any indication of any severe punishment for those whose actions resulted in the deaths of two people and the injuries of four others while they were protesting the death of a social activist who had been killed.

During an interview with Citi News, Abdullai Abubakar, the brother of one of the two deceased people, stated that they want those who were responsible for their relative’s death prosecuted and brought to justice.

“We have gone through the report, and it is not in our favor because you can’t come and kill someone’s relative and give the family money and say it’s okay. This is why crime is continuing in this country every day because we are living in a system of impunity, that is what we want to stop.”

“Our problem is not money, so you want to compensate us for what? All we want is justice. We are not going to tale any money without trial. Will our relatives come back to life if we take the money.”

Months ago, the commission that investigated the disturbances explicitly selected two deceased individuals and three others injured to get compensation.

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

“Adequate compensation must also be paid to other injured persons namely, Louis Ayikpa (20years), Awal Misbau (16 years), and Nasif Nuhu (30 years). These are the names known to the Committee”, the recommendations read in part.

The only punishments were a suggestion that the MCE for the region is removed and maybe the Ejura Police Commander be transferred.

There were no significant suggestions for punishment against the military soldiers who fired the bullets or the Ashanti Regional Minister who summoned the troops.

However, in the instance of the military, the Committee suggested that it “review the actions of the section on the ground, led by Lieutenant Martin Opoku Adusei, for the inappropriate use of force and apply appropriate sanctions.”
