The Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has presented 20,000 Ghana cedis to each bereaved family in Ejura following the killing of three persons in that part of the country.

Dr Bawumia, Sheikh Nuhu Sharubutu and the National Security minister, Albert Kan Dapaah later visited the Ejura Traditional Council.

The Chief of Ejura was unhappy with the recent disturbances in the area.

He said the Traditional Council has decided to construction a divisional police command edifice to enhance security.

The Vice President supported the project with one thousand bags of cement and 50 thousand Ghana cedis.

Meanwhile, the three persons who were arrested in connection with the murder of Ibrahim Alhassan Anyars (Kaaka) have been remanded into a police custody by the Asokwa District court in Kumasi.

The presiding judge Akua Adu Boahen was convinced after the prosecutor Chief Superintendent Kofi Blagodzie prayed the court for more time to investigate the matter.

The suspects, Issaka Ibrahim aka Anyars,Fuseini Alhassan, and Iddi Mohammed who is the brother of Kaaka appeared at the Asokwa district court 1 at around 10:30am Friday July 2.

The three were charged with conspiracy to commit crime and murder.

Their plea were not taken after the prosecutor had convinced the court the case has national interest.

The Presiding judge remanded the three into police custody to reappear on July 22, 2021.
