''If you want peace to come to Ejura, we need justice. It's not just my family, three young men were also killed; my brother and another young man in the house of the Dagomba King are all innocent.
''My brother didn't have to die this way. He had not eaten. He said he was going to get food when it happened,'' she said amid tears.

Sadia Abubakar called on President Akufo-Addo to ensure that the killers of her brother are brought to book.

''Let's unravel the truth and ensure that justice is delivered to the killers and their families. If you ask around in the community, my brother had no problem with anyone,'' she added.

The demonstrating youth stormed the police station in the community to inquire about the extent of investigations regarding the murder of Ibrahim Mohammed.

Although the police had told them two persons had been arrested in connection with the crime, the agitated protesters were not pleased.

The youth, therefore, hit the streets to continue their demonstration until they were met by armed military and police personnel.

In a video posted online, four soldiers can be seen moving towards the protesters with a police water cannon.

Initially, the military personnel shot into the sky. But at some point, when the protesters charged, the military personnel started shooting into the crowd.

Abdul Nasir Yussif and Muntala Mohammed were hit and the crowd scattered, with some of the protesters running to seek shelter in nearby houses.

The pair died from gunshots after they were rushed to the Ejura Hospital. Both bodies have been buried at the Mempeasem cemetery in Ejura.
