British nationals receive travel advice over deadly Ejura protests

The British High Commission has asked its nationals in Ghana to avoid any large public gatherings and demonstrations in the wake of the deadly violence in Ejura in the Ashanti Region on Tuesday, June 29.

This travel advice was given after two persons were shot dead during protests in that area.

The mass action was to demand justice following the murder of one Ibrahim Anyass, who is a known social media activist who highlights areas of development that have seemingly been abandoned by government.

“We are concerned by reports of violence and saddened by the news of deaths in Ejura,” the High Commission stated on Twitter.

“Our thoughts are with the families and community at this time.”

Four persons including a military lieutenant were injured in the clash.

The Ashanti Regional Police Command of the Ghana Police Service, however, says calm has been restored to the area while reinforcement has been deployed to ensure stability.
