The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) District Police Command has begun investigations to unravel the circumstances that led to the death of a 40-year-old man, believed to be an employee of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), after he visited a female student of the school at her hostel.
The deceased, identified as Kwadwo Appiah, reportedly collapsed in the room of the student on Sunday, 18th April, 2021.
Contrary to reports on social media that he died in the room of the level 300 student, the District Police Command has revealed that he passed away at the KNUST hospital, where he was taken after he collapsed.
According to the police, Mr Appiah died two hours after he was taken to the hospital and had, until this demise, been receiving treatment.
The police told Citi News that the brother of the deceased, Akwasi Baafi, reported the incident to the KNUST District Police station, where the student has been invited for interrogation.
“On 18th April, we had a report that the deceased visited a lady at a hostel and after some time, the man collapsed and the lady took him to the hospital [where he died]. The body is being kept for autopsy. That is the information we have so far.”
Meanwhile, the body of the deceased has been deposited at the Emena Hospital morgue awaiting autopsy.
