Girlfriend of dead Kumasi journalist granted bail
Florence Osei, also known as Afua Birago, the girlfriend of deceased Kumasi-based journalist Confidence Eric Kwadwo Baah, has been granted bail by the police after being held for close to 24 hours following her boyfriend’s death.
No charges have been preferred against her.
Florence allegedly spent most of Saturday with Confidence before he was found unconscious in his room by his aunt on Sunday.
After being rushed to the Emergency Unit of the Effiduase Government Hospital, the Kessben TV and radio presenter was pronounced dead. It is not clear yet what killed him.
Meanwhile, Police in the Effiduase District of the Ashanti Region have demanded a coroner’s inquest into the manner and cause of death of Kwadwo Baah.
District Police Commander DSP Douglas Kumah told Chief Jerry Forson on Accra100.5FM’s breakfast show, Ghana Yensom, on Monday, 17 October, that the coroner’s inquest was important because the deceased was not ill 24 hours before his death.
DSP Kumah said the police would see their way clearly about how to proceed with investigations into the matter after they have got the coroner’s report.
