“I Warned Him About His Activism On Social Media” – Wife Of Deceased Facebook Political Activist

The wife of murdered political activist, Ibrahim Muhammed, Zahada Hudu has revealed that she warned her late husband about his involvement in social activism but all efforts fell on deaf ears.

According to her, despite all her attempts, it looked clear that nothing could stop her last husband from achieving his goal.

The mother of six, now a widow says she is appealing to the Ghana Police Service to expedite investigations into the gruesome killing of her husband to ensure that the perpetrators are arrested and dealt with.

The deceased, Ibrahim Muhammed, who’s also believed to be a member of the Economic Fighters League, and recently the #FixTheCountry movement, was reported to have been attacked by a mob at about 1:30 am on Saturday, June 26, 2021.

His shout for help drew the attention of some residents of Sabonline, a Zongo community in the Ejura township, but they came in late to find him lying unconscious.

Ibrahim Muhammed, alias Macho Kaaka, was quickly rushed to the Ejura Sekyeredumase District Hospital.

After assessing the degree of injuries sustained, he was referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

The social activist finally gave up the ghost on Monday, June 28, 2021.

According to Madam Zahada Hudu, her late husband had been using social media to highlight challenges within Ejura, particularly abandoned government projects that he believes deserve attention from state actors.

She believes his activities may have influenced some persons to attack him since he had been warned by some unknown persons prior to the attack.

Madam Zahada Hudu, who is saddened by the incident, demanded justice for her late husband.

“In the early hours of Saturday, we heard a loud noise in the house. I thought my husband was driving away goats from the house at the time. Little did I know that he was being attacked. We saw him in a pool of blood. The people bolted as soon as we opened the door to check what was happening.”

She indicated that, prior to the attack, her late husband told her he had been threatened to desist from his social media activities.

“Before the attack, he told me that someone had warned him against posting some issues on social media. I even warned him to stop since that could lead to his death but he wouldn’t listen. I know the person that issued the warning to my husband. We want the police to thoroughly conduct investigations into it to ensure the perpetrators are arrested,” she told Citi News.

Meanwhile, the police in the area say they have begun investigations into the matter.

They however say they have not been able to make any arrest yet.

The police are thus asking residents to assist them with information that will lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.
