The Interior Minister Mr. Ambrose Dery has described the criticisms that were made against the three-member Ejura committee even before they started their work as premature and prejudicial.

“The problem is anybody who lacked confidence in the committee didn’t have a basis for that. I cannot. I cannot do anything about idiosyncrasies and prejudices.

He said persons who lacked confidence in the committee had no basis to do so.h

“There was no basis for that but can I prevent people from having those views?

“It was premature and prejudicial,” he told journalists after receiving the report from the Committee on Tuesday, July 27.

The committee set up to probe the disturbances in Ejura in the Ashanti Region on Tuesday, June 28 has presented its report to Mr. Dery.

At a short ceremony at the Ministry of Interior in Accra on Tuesday, July 27, Court of Appeal judge Justice George Kingsley Koomson, who is also chairman of the committee, presented the report to Mr. Dery.

The committee was tasked by the Interior Minister on Thursday, July 1 to look into the circumstances that led to the disturbances, which claimed two lives and left four injured.

It was sparked by the death of social media activist Ibrahim Abyars Mohammed, popularly known on Facebook as Macho Kaaka.

But the committee had to listen to various parties to find out the cause of the unrest and proffer recommendations to the government.
