The Krofrom protests have subsequently gotten to the hearing of the Manhiya North MP Collins Amankwa
As it appears, Krofrom residents and the Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Amankwa, are all on the same page regarding the autopsy report on the 27-year-old deceased. The report revealed that the deceased died of a heart failure.
The Manhyia North MP has said he is not convinced by the autopsy reports which exonerated the three police officers said to have a hand in the death of Osei. The report which stated the case of death of the deceased to be heart failure, absolved the officers of any wrongdoing in the death of the man.
27-year-old Osei Tawiah was allegedly beaten to death after three police officers on patrol mistook him for a criminal. The three police officers were arrested and kept in custody till further investigations. The autopsy report believed to have been conducted by a pathologists at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital however, indicated that the deceased died of a heart failure.
Irate youth of Kumasi had staged protests yesterday over the autopsy report which they believe to be deception on the part of the police. The angry youth demonstrated in the area demanding that the police officers responsible for the death of the deceased be prosecuted for their crimes. The Krofrom protests have subsequently gotten to the hearing of the Manhiya North MP Collins Amankwa.
Like the Krofrom residents, Mr. Amankwa who spoke to Citi News expressed his disappointment over the issue. The MP has said that he and his constituents would officially state their position on the recent developments after the one week memorial of the deceased. The MP who supported the argument of his people based on the autopsy report said that the “reports suggesting that he died as a result of heart failure are imaginations”.
Mr. Mankwa said the people are not convinced, and are demanding answers from the police
