The Ashanti Regional Police Command has debunked media reports suggesting that there were some mysterious deaths on the streets of Kumasi.
Some media reportage this week indicated that five persons died mysteriously on the streets of Kumasi.
In reaction to this claim, Public Relations Officer for the Ashanti Regional Police Command, DSP Godwin Ahianyo in an interview today April 16 2020 said such claims of mysterious deaths are untrue
The PRO further explained that: ''With the second case, the residents alleged another old man fell unconscious and died. The police had to call the appropriate authorities, that is the health and Covid-19 team to go to the scene and take the necessary action’’.
The Ashanti Regional Police PRO also assured the general public to remain calm because Kumasi is safe and that everyone is going about their normal duties.
Again, the Police PRO appealed to media persons to check and cross-check their facts before putting it out for public consumption.
