JUST IN: IGP Invites Wontumi FM’s Oheneba Aseidu over John Kumah’s death

The Inspector General of Police (IGP) has invited a presenter at Wontumi FM to assist with investigations into the death of Deputy Finance Minister, John Kumah.

The invitation by the IGP follows claims by the presenter that he was present when the late MP cum Minister was offered food which he suspects was poisoned.

Oheneba claimed the late minister, who was also the Ejisu Member of Parliament, was poisoned through guinea fowl meat (Akonfem).

Asiedu alleged that the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Chairman Wontumi, and the late legislator were served the claimed poisoned meat during their stay in the same hotel in Tamale in the Northern Region on October 22.

He recalls the two politicians were in Tamale to support the election campaign of the now-presidential candidate of the NPP, Dr Bawumia.

”Myself [Oheneba Nana Asiedu], Chairman Wontumi, and one of Chairman Wontumi’s boys, Kwaku Marfo, travelled to Tamale to support Dr Bawumia’s campaign. The late Dr John Kumah later joined us in Tamale from Accra. When we first arrived, we switched hotel rooms for security reasons.

”After our campaign on October 22, we planned to go to Walewale in the North East Region, but we returned to Tamale due to the day’s prolonged campaign activities. Our hotel arrangements became disorganised because we never intended to stay in Tamale. Hence, I had to sleep in the same hotel in Tamale as Marfo, while Wontumi and Kumah stayed in a different hotel in the same region,” he recounted.

A video recording of his narration has since gone viral on social media with persons who claim the late MP was poisoned citing that as basis.

This has prompted the IGP to invite him for questioning as well.
