The late Kaaka

The Ashanti Regional Police command has arrested two suspects in connection with the murder of #FixTheCountry activist and a member of the Economic Fighters League, Ibrahim Mohammed, aka "Kaaka" in the Ejura Municipality of the Ashanti region.

The suspects were identified as Ibrahim Issaka "Anyass" and Fuseini Alhassan.

The public relations officer of the regional police command, ASP Godwin Ahianyo, told the media that the suspects were arrested at about 10:45 pm on Monday, 28 June 2021, following police intelligence.

He said an account by a witness indicates that the 45-year-old resident of Dagombaline at Ejura was ambushed in front of his house when he was returning home on his motorbike at about 1:30 pm on Sunday, 27 June 2021.

Mr Ahianyo said he was rushed to the Ejura Government Hospital but was later referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital where he died while on admission on Sunday, 28 June 2021.

He said the police have commenced investigations to ascertain whether the murder was linked to his work as a journalist or the #FixTheCountry movement.

Mr Ahianyo said the command appeals to anyone with any relevant information to share with them.
