Family for the former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Afigya Sekyere East Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Hennric David Yeboah is suspecting foul play in his death, MyNewsGh.com reports.
The former lawmaker was reported to have died at a health facility at Jamasi in the Ashanti Region under what the family say is under mysterious circumstances according to one Dr Nana Oppong who said the family is awaiting an autopsy report to ascertain the actual cause of death.
“He started complaining of body aches, stomach problem on Friday morning and he sent somebody to go and buy him medicine but he wasn’t feeling well so he decided to drive himself to the hospital at a place called Jamasi. It was at Jamasi that he died few hours later and we don’t know why he died so far after he drove himself to the hospital.
“I understand they gave him three injections plus some medicines, I’m yet to find out the details of that. It sounds odd, everything is strange and he’s dead so we’re going to do an autopsy to determine the cause of death.” He disclosed.
Born in 1957, he served as a member of the Parliament of Ghana representing the constituency in the Ashanti Region from 2004-2015 until he was beaten at the NPP parliamentary primary by 26-year-old Mavis Nkansah Boadu who is the current Member of Parliament (MP) for the area.
He studied at Malcolm X College in Chicago in the 1980s, receiving a diploma in 1986. Yeboah until his death was a businessman and was CEO of Daphelia Enterprise Limited.
The late Yeboah was a Christian and a member of a Charismatic Christian Church.
