On Tuesday, June 29, Ejura youth took to the streets to protest a mob attack and subsequent death of a social media activist, Ibrahim Kaaka Mohammed, who is a known affiliate of the #FixTheCountry and Economic Freedom Fighters pressure groups.

The youth say authorities failed to protect Kaaka, as he is popularly known, because he had reported threats made on his life due to his activism prior to the assault on him.

The blocked roads and burned tyres, compelling security authorities to dispatch a team of military and police personnel to maintain order.

A soldier captured in a viral video squatting and taking aim at a protestor before firing-shortly after arriving at the scene of the protest.

Two people died after the military shot into the crowd of protestors.

Four other protestors have also sustained gunshot injuries.

Kaaka was critical of the government seeming neglect of the social and infrastructural needs of his community.
