The family of the late Ibrahim Muhammed, also known as Kaaka, has filed a petition with the National Chief Imam’s office, requesting a fast trial for the deceased’s murder.
At a meeting on Thursday morning, the petition was submitted to the office’s advisory board.
The petition will be forwarded to the National Chief Imam, according to Seidu Nasigri, the Chief Imam’s legal officer.
“It is when we sit with him [Chief Imam] and possibly after deliberations that, that information will be made known to the family and possibly the press.”
After bringing the petition to the Chief Imam’s Office, a family spokeswoman, Nafiu Mohammed, expressed confidence that the office will assist in finding answers to the family’s unanswered worries.
He stated that he desired a “neutral voice” outside of the judiciary.
“We are looking at a way that he will help to enhance the process so things that are not done right will be done right,” he said.
Ibrahim Muhammed, a resident of Ejura in the Ashanti Region, was killed. Three people have been arrested so far in connection with his death.
On the evening of June 27, he was attacked and died the next day.
After the military came to the site, two people were killed and others were injured as a result of his death.
This led to the formation of a commission of inquiry, which heard from approximately 20 witnesses, including journalists, police officers, soldiers, political appointees, and some victims.
Issaka Ibrahim, Fuseni Mohammed, and Iddi Mohammed have been charged with murder and conspiracy to commit a felony.
Ibrahim Muhammed’s family had previously accused the police of stalling investigations, but the police have disputed these claims.
Instead, the police blamed delays on the Attorney General’s office.
