The deceased aeronautic engineer at Africa World Airlines, whose body was discovered in a bush near a Police checkpoint at Akroso in the Eastern region, after a frantic search is demanding an independent investigation into his death following suspicions about possible cover-up.
The IGP has ordered an immediate investigation after one person, a driver was reportedly arrested for his possible involvement.
The late Prince Kwabena Kumi was reportedly driving to visit his mother but never arrived. His abandoned car was neatly parked at a nearby Police post together with his phones and other belongings.
A cousin of the deceased, Gideon Saka says the family will take legal action if the Police does not give them tangible explanation to the death of their realative.
But the Police maintains it is innocent. ACP F.S Adika, the Akim Oda Police Commander who spoke to XYZ News noted that it is not true the body was not found near a police check point.
But in a sharp reaction, a cousin of the deceased, Gideon Saka who could not hold back his emotions, insisted the Police is lying and vowed to to take the matter up.
Speaking to Kofi Oppong Asamoah on News Wire Wednesday night, Gideon said “ what the man [the police commander]said is a blatant lie and I cannot take heart. Nobody came to our village to see the chief. There is no chief in our village. He just came to see a subchief to pour a libation.”
Crying out, Gideon said there has not been any police officer at Akim Asubua, their village, so if the police say they are committed to investigating the matter to the bottom.
Meanwhile, police have picked up one more suspect in connection with the death and will be arraigned before court on Friday.
