Popular Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel, has added his voice to those condemning the military officers who opened fire at Ejura in the Ashanti Region recently.
Two persons were shot dead during alleged activism in that area following the death of one Kaaka.
Kaaka, according to various news reports, was killed for taking part in the #fixthecountry social media campaign that has been ongoing for some time now.
In trying to calm the situation at Ejura, the military men allegedly opened fire on the crowd, killing two people instantly.
This is what Majid has decried, stressing that the military’s action is only a proof that it is better to raise little children than to repair broken men.
Majid’s post has triggered some reactions from fans.
April foinest, for instance, could not agree more with him:
Adepa also applauded him:
adepakarikari8: “Well said Bishop.”
Rashid also agreed fully with Majid:
rashid_awudu: “Bro Your Last Statement will be the solution to this Corrupt generation… We need to raise strong children.”

Meanwhile, Majid was in the news when fans observed that he is growing old.
The comments come after his latest photos showing grey hair surfaced on the internet.
