- Justice Adjakuma, the young man who lost his eye during a Let my Vote Count demonstration has passed
- He died at a hospital in Accra
The young man who lost his eye during a Let my Vote Count demonstration some years ago has reportedly died.
Justice Adjakuma is reported to have died on Sunday, May 12, 2019 at a hospital at Mallam in Accra.
The deceased was part of the group Let My Vote Count Alliance that demonstrated against the Electoral Commission’s (EC) voter’s register in September 2015.
The demonstration, however, did not go according to plan as the group clashed with the police.
Majority of the protestors sustained serious injuries after the police shot rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons into the crowd.
But in a Facebook post, the convener for Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA), David Asante confirmed that Mr. Adjakuma has died after three years after suffering an eye injury.
He wrote: “This morning I was invited to a Hospital at Malam in Accra, where Justice my brother was pronounced dead! “Painful as it was, we take consolation in the fact that our brother served well his generation and his name will be remembered as a gallant Soldier who fought well for the consolidation of our electoral process and our Democracy “Rest well my Brother “Rest well Justice Adjakuma.”
