The government has finally paid a total of GHC1,218,897 to three surviving victims who were severely injured during a violent protest in Ejura in the Ashanti Region, two years ago.

17-year-old Awal Misbaw got his leg amputated as a result of the shooting, while 22-year-old Louis Ayikpa and 31-year-old Nazif Nuhu also sustained gunshot wounds. Each victim received between GHC 190,000 and 600,000 during a brief ceremony held on Wednesday (15 February).

The compensation follows a report by a fact-finding committee into the June 29 fatal clash between soldiers and protesting residents of Ejura.
