The Dean of Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) has described how the late Krachi DCE in the Oti Region was found dead in a Kumasi hotel room.
The dead DCE, Francis Kofi Okesu, had resided at Herbed House Hotel in Kentikrono, near to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, according to Akyem Achiase District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr. Richmond Agyabeng Amponsah (KNUST).
He was unable to say if he slept at the same hotel as the driver or not, but revealed on Accra-based Adom Fm, which was monitored by MyNewsGh.com, that he tried calling him the next morning but was unable to get him on phone.
“The driver called him several times but he was not responding to his phone. He moved with some staff of the hotel to the room and knocked severally at the door but he was not responding either. A complaint was lodged with the police and the door was broken and there laid the lifeless body of the DCE. He was in the room alone. I do not want to make further comments because the matter is still under investigation by the police”, he disclosed.
Meanwhile, Richmond Agyabeng Amponsah has revealed that the DCE was not in Kumasi for any national event but suspects it could be something relating only to him.
“He is the Dean of MMDCEs of Oti Region. I met him two weeks ago and we met last week Thursday and spoke about an impending funeral. He may have travelled to Kumasi for some activities and lodged in a hotel. I am not sure he was attending any Regional and National Programme”, he revealed.
