Some Ghanaians on social media are angry over the killing of some three persons at Ejura

There is anger on Ghana's social media space following the today's deadly incidents at Ejura in the Ashanti region where young people clashed with security forces.

The outrage is a combination of issues triggered by the killing of three persons by a joint military and police force deployed to Ejura to restore calm after irate youth stormed the street to protest the death of Ibrahim Mohammed, an activist who was a member of the #FixTheCountry campaign.
