Background

An activist of the #FixTheCountry movement, Ibrahim Mohammed, alias Kaaka has been killed by unknown assailants for his advocacy at Ejura Sekyeredumase in the Ashanti region.

He is said to have had his head clubbed in his home Friday night by the assailants until he became unconscious and was rushed to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi where he later died Monday afternoon.

Sources say though he reported threats to his life to the police by some people who claimed his activism on social media was making the government unpopular in Ejura, the law enforcement agency failed to act but rather issued him with a warning letter to be cautious of his utterances.
