The formation of the committee comes after the death of activist Ibrahim Muhammed and two others in Ejura.
Ibrahim Muhammed, the 40-year-old father of six, was murdered in cold blood by unknown persons outside his residence at Ejura in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
His death is connected with his work as an activist as part of the popular Fix The Country movement online and offline.
Sahada Hudu, the deceased's wife, said he had received warnings regarding his activism from a person she knows. She said her attempts to stop him from getting himself in danger proved futile as he continued with his advocacy.
Following his death, the youth of Ejura embarked on a demonstration seeking answers from authorities.
It ended in a shooting by security personnel and the death of two people.
Sadia Abubakar, the sister of Abdul Nasir Yussif, has demanded justice following the death of her brother who was shot and killed during the protest by the youth in Ejura Sekyedumase in the Ashanti Region.
Abdul Nasir Yussif, aged 25, and Murtala 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.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian artiste, Stonebwoy has reacted to the death of Ibrahim 'Kaaka' Mohammed and the shooting of two other individuals by security personnel in Ejura this week.
