Family of late President John Evans Atta Mills has asked members of the general public, especially politicians, to respect their wishes and allow the memory of the former leader to rest in peace.
The family expressed worry at the way some politicians are taking advantage of the death of their beloved for their own parochial interest.
Speaking on Okay Fm’s Ade Akye Abia program, Hon. Samuel Atta Mills, brother of the deceased and Member of Parliament for Komenda-Edna-Eguaafo-Abirem, recalled that he was with his brother on the day of his death as they were scheduled to travel on the same day.
A furious Samuel Atta Mills condemned the attempt to make political capital out of the death of their relative, and sounded a word of caution to such perpetrators to desist from this act of ‘drunkenness‘.
“. . an autopsy has been conducted, and I was present when it was done. …it is nigh time those behind these allegations ceasewith their act of drunkenness,” he fumed.
Abronye’s CID Invitation
The Bono Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe, a couple of months ago, alleged that former President John Dramani Mahama had a hand in the death of the late Professor. He also accused him of hatching a plot to assassinate some key NPP members including Abronye himself.
The allegations were made on Net 2 TV.
Mr Mahama subsequently wrote to the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service. through his counsel, Tony Lithur of Lithur Brew law firm, on May 4, drawing the attention of the security agency to an infringement of Section 208 of Act 29 which talks about the publication of false news with intent to cause fear.
“On the program, Abronye DC announced to the general public that some NPP personalities would be assassinated by NDC hirelings who would be wearing NPP T-shirts and that these hirelings would be doing the bidding of former President John Mahama,” Mr. Lithur’s letter of complaint to the CID read.
“On the same program, Abronye DC stated that President John Mahama ‘killed President John Evans Atta-Mills’.”
The Police CID then invited the outspoken NPP activist in connection with a petition from former President Mahama over the assassination claims against him; which he readily honoured.
Exhume Mills’ Remains
Godwin Edudzi Tamakloe, a Special Aide to former President John Mahama, has surprisingly opened-up deep valleys of rotten worms as he calls on President Akufo-Addo, to immediately exhume the mortal remains of the late President John Evans Atta Mills for further investigations into the cause of death.
He spoke on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, with Host, Kwame Nkrumah Tikese, on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Morning Show.
