There is an uneasy calm at Ejura following yesterday’s protest that led to the death of 2 youth with many others sustaining various degrees of injuries.
This comes after the youth of Ejura embarked on a protest for the death of Ibrahim Mohammed, well known as Macho Kaaka, a member of Fix The Country who was attacked by a mob in his house on June 25 around midnight.
Macho Kaaka was stabbed and had sustained a great deal of injury, leading to his unfortunate death.
In the course of the demonstration for Kaaka’s death, the angry youths went to the Police Station to make an enquiry about the progress of investigations on his death.
After leaving the Police Station, the youth took to the streets to display their disappointment and frustration as to how things are unfolding.
According to them, Kaaka is not the only person in the area to have suffered such an attack that took his life.
However, military personnel deployed to restore calm in the area shockingly clashed with the protesters, firing guns into the crowd of unarmed protesters.
The unfortunate clash took the lives of two youth right on the spot as the two of them were hit with bullets.
One of the two who died on the spot is Abdul Nasir Yussif, a 25-year old farmer who doubles as a travelling agent.
He was shot in the left shoulder and his chest, causing internal bleeding which led to his death before they arrived at the hospital.
The other one is Muntala Mohammed, a 26-year old motor dealer who was shot in the back through to his chest.

According to reports, the first person who was shot sustained injuries on the thigh — his femur bone got completely fractured as a result.
