Kaaka’s murder trial adjourned to February 14

The Asokwa District Court in the Ashanti Region has adjourned the case involving three persons standing trial for their alleged involvement in the murder of social activist, Ibrahim ‘Kaaka’ Mohammed to February 14, 2022.

Her Worship Akua Adu Boahene, the presiding judge over the case, registered her dissatisfaction with the prosecution following series of adjournments during previous hearings, mainly due to absenteeism and unpreparedness.

On Tuesday, although the three suspects were present in court, the lead prosecutor, Chief Superintendent Kofi Blagodzi, and the Magistrate, Akua Adu Boahene were absent.

The matter has since been adjourned to February 14, 2022.

Background

‘Kaaka’ was killed on Monday, June 28, 2021, after he was attacked by unknown assailants while returning home from an event.

Earlier reports suggested that the attack was a reaction to his social activism which sought to make government unpopular.

However, police reports suggest otherwise.

The Interior Ministry subsequently constituted a three-member committee chaired by Justice George Kingsley Koomson to probe the issue and make recommendations.
