The three-member committee that was tasked to probe the Ejura disturbances have recommended that all crowd control units put on body cameras in order to record every action.
According to the committee, the application of maximum force by the security escalated the situation.
“All crowd/riot/crisis/control unit be made to wear bodycams and all vehicles and mobile gadgets employed must also have cameras,” the committee recommended.
The committee recommended among other things “training Regional Security Council (REGSEC), Municipal Security Council (MUSEC) and District Security Council (DISEC) officials in the Ashanti Region in conflict and crisis management at the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College at least once every year.”
It said “Our findings show that the death of Mohammed Ibrahim aka ‘Kaaka’ and the mishandling of same, was the trigger point for the riots that followed. Meanwhile maximum application of force worsened the situation. We hope that the ongoing investigations of Kaaka would be expedited and the culprits brought to book.”
