Autopsy Report On Krofrom Killing Too Ambiguous – Minority

The Minority in Parliament is calling for further clarification on the autopsy report of the 27-year-old man, who was allegedly beaten to death by three police officers at Krofrom in the Ashanti Region.


Led by its leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Minority said, the autopsy report released by the police cited heart failure as the cause of death despite reports that the deceased, Osei Tawiah, was allegedly beaten to death after police officers on patrol mistook him for a criminal.

Meanwhile, irate youth in the town who disagreed with the autopsy report, conveyed their anger with protests against the police.

Speaking on Citi Fm, an Accra-based Radio station, Kyei Mensah Bonsu highlighted the ambiguity of the report saying, that “I am not a medical officer, but I thought if the report said the person died of heart attack, it could arise from anything. I would think further clarification may have to be sought with respect to what the report says.”

He also said that a life had been lost and that “is not happy news even if it is from natural causes.”

On his part the Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Amankwa, supported the protest and indicated that the autopsy report absolved three police officers of any wrongdoing.

He said, “I share the sentiment of my people. These reports suggesting that he died as a result of heart failure are imaginations. The fact of the matter is that we are not satisfied”
