“Atta Mills died in Nigeria-Ernest Owusu Bempah

Ernest Owusu Bempah, the Communications Director of Ghana Gas Company Limited , today  revisited  the circumstances surrounding the death of Professor John Evans Atta-Mills by making a fresh revelation that  the former President died in Nigeria.

This revelation likely  to  generate a lot of controversy runs counter to the generally held belief  that the former President died either  at the Osu Castle  (which was then serving as the seat of government) or on his way to the hospital

Mr. Owusu Bempah did not give further details to back his claim  when he spoke on Wontumi Television and Radio on Wednesday. However, he raised a number of issues  which he wants members of the late Professor Atta-Mills government at that time to answer before the matter could be put to rest.

According to Mr. Owusu-Bempah, the timing of the late President’s  death and the failure to make public the coroner’s report  raise a number of questions  which are beckoning for answers.

He said for the suspicion to  be put to sleep, these and other substantive issues such as the failure to disclose the  identity  of the person who first chanced upon the body of the former President as well as denying the pubic access to the CCTV footage that is supposed to contain the recordings on Professor Atta-Mills last days at the Osu Castle.

They owe it a duty to the good people of Ghana to answer  all these questions else the suspicion that the truth is being deliberately shelved would continue to dominate the thoughts of the anxious public.

The actual cause of the death of the former President has always  remained a mystery with none of the family members still not  ready to  make a disclosure based on his medical report to satisfy the curiosity of an an anxious public.

The NDC government  at that time did not come out with the details of the cause of death of Professor Atta-Mills to set the stage for speculations to flourish.

Withholding information on the cause of death of the then sitting President has been counter productive as it has activated the rumour mill which has been  churning  out various theories. One of such theories has been that he may have died from “severe complications of stroke.”

It has also been speculated that, “Professor Atta-Mills  suffered from progressive throat cancer which affected his eyesight and ability to hear well.”

A brother of the late President, Dr. Cadman Mills, was quoted as saying that, “the Professor was  one of the loneliest Presidents  Ghana ever had and that his Ministers and persons close to him at the Presidency never even bothered to engage him in conversations.”

Professor Atta-Mills was the President of the Republic in 2009 and died in 2012. He was earlier the Vice President under former President J.J Rawlings from 1997-2001.
