The late Krachi East MCE

Mr. Okesu was reportedly found dead in a hotel room in Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Region.

According to a report by Luv FM, the deceased had checked into the hotel late on Friday, September 2 with his driver, Sylvester Attah.

The driver, however, left to lodge in a different hotel.

Mr Kofi Okesu has not been seen since he checked into the hotel and efforts to reach him proved futile.


Investigations established that Mr Attah could also not reach him on the scheduled day of return to Dambai on Sunday, September 4.

An official complaint was lodged with the Police by the Manager of the said hotel in Kumasi.

Subsequently, the Police broke into his room only to find the dead body of Mr Okesu.

Police found his body in a supine position in bed naked with his left arm hanging beside the bed on Sunday.

A careful examination of the body by health professionals found no marks of violence, but traces of spermatozoa on his thigh.


According to the officials, the drops of spermatozoa suggest a possible sexual act before his death.

The body has been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital mortuary for preservation and autopsy.
