Abdul Nasir Yussif, aged 25, and Muntala Mohammed, 26, died from gunshots following a military attack on the protesting youth demanding justice for the murdered social media activist, Ibrahim Mohammed aka Kaaka.
Speaking in an interview with TV3, the deceased's sister, she demanded justice for her brother, saying he was innocent.
The killing of Ibrahim Mohammed aka Kaaka erupted uneasy calm in Ejura Sekyedumase as the youth in the community demanded justice following his murder.
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.
