Members of the family have questioned how the media got the news about the death of their relative before they received official information from the police.
The family of the dental surgeon and lecturer at the Korle- Bu Teaching Hospital whose body was found in a hotel at Dansoman, have demanded answers from the police about the death of their relative.
The sister of the deceased, Justine Adua Avogo said that claims that the family received information about the death of their relative on the same day the body was discovered were false.
She said that the family received the news through the media on their way to work.
“The family was informed or got to know about his demise mainly through the media on Friday,” she narrated in a message sent to the Daily Guide newspaper.
Ms Avogo has since questioned as to how the media got the news about the death of their relative before the family received official information from the police.
“If he was identified Thursday night, why wasn’t the family informed immediately”? she questioned.
She further wondered why the body was ‘secretly’ deposited at the morgue, without the police bothering to contact the family who lived about 300 metres away from the morgue.
The aggrieved sister has, therefore, urged the police to conduct in-depth investigations into the real mystery behind the death of her brother.
Meanwhile, police in Dansoman are still searching for the lady who reportedly checked into the hotel with the deceased, Dr Dominic Avogo two hours before his death.
The lady, identified only as Sarah and believed to be the lover of the late senior dental surgeon, allegedly left the hotel room an hour before the doctor’s body was discovered.
