Munawara Ibrahim, the 18-year old daughter of Ibrahim Mohammed, alias Kaaka, the social activist who died after being beaten to a pulp, believes her Uncle, Iddris (Iddi) Muhammed, who has been arrested in connection with her father’s death is innocent.
Kaaka left behind a wife and 5 children.
The bereaved relatives of Kaaka and the two others who were killed by soldiers during a protest over his death in Ejura, were agitated soon after the Vice President and the National Chief Imam left the family house after going there to commiserate with them on Friday, July 2, 2021.
Speaking to Citi News after the visit, Kaaka’s daughter, Munawara Ibrahim, pleaded with the government to intervene and release her Uncle, because in her view and without any sound evidence, he was “innocent”.
“He is not the one who killed my father. He is not capable of doing such a thing. I can swear to that. I am really hurt. The real culprits are walking around freely while my innocent uncle is in police custody.”
“I am pleading with the government to release my uncle.”
Iddris Muhammed was the third suspect to be arrest after two other suspects, Issaka Ibrahim and Fuseni Alhassan were picked up.
Police have so far not given details about his connection to his brother’s death.
Meanwhile, the Asokwa District Court on Friday, July 2, 2021, remanded into police custody the three suspects.
The suspects are to reappear before the court on July 22, 2021.
They were slapped with two charges; conspiracy to commit crime and murder.
During the court proceedings, the prosecutor, Chief Supt. Kofi Blagodzi, prayed the court to remand them into police custody to allow them to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter.
