Osei Kwadwo says the case has been subsequently reported to the police, and investigation are underway to ascertain any foul-play that may have occured.

Osei Kwadwo adds that there are suspicions of suicide as well given that others people in the area consumed the rice from that same source and Wednesday and are fine. This has prompted the suspicion that Kofi Owusu who was recently divorced by his wife, may have taken his own life.
