He was getting better after being put on the dialysis for sometime twice every week. With time, we’ll thought all is well with our brother (Bra Kofi) until Wednesday (June 28, 2017) when he told close family members he’s going for checkup. Sadly, he became unconscious while on the machine and all attempt by the doctors to bring him back to life at the time proved futile on Thursday” the brother of the late Kofi Agyiri told DJ Roar.
