The autopsy report exonerated three police officers who were accused of beating to death a 27-year-old man in a dawn swoop last week at Krofrom.

The autopsy report states that, the deceased died of a heart failure. But residents have rejected the report, adding that the said police officers have a hand in the boy’s death and should therefore be prosecuted.

Some of the residents demonstrated against police on the matter on Tuesday, creating tension in the town.

Commenting on the matter on Accra-based Citi FM, the MP for Manhyia North said he and his constituents will officially state their position on the matter after the one week memorial of the deceased, Osei Tawiah.

“We are not happy people at all. Honestly the way this young man has lost his life, we find it difficult to comprehend.

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

Meanwhile, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP Kofi Boakye has vowed to deal ruthlessly with the youth of the area if they fail to stay clear off the streets in their bid to protest over the autopsy report.

He further debunked the assertion that the police had connived with the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital to shield the said officers.
