A 31-year-old man is alleged to have died while having sex with his lover in her house at John Tei, near Accra.
The deceased, identified by the police as Divine Kwame Avortri, worked in the pharmacy department of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission Hospital in Accra.
His girlfriend, whose name had been withheld by the police, is assisting the police with their investigations.
According to the police, Avortri visited his lover last Sunday and the two of them engaged in a bout of sex.
While in the act, Avortri is said to have complained of severe headache but before the two could find a solution, he had collapsed.
With the help of some neighbours, he was taken to the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission Hospital but he was pronounced dead on arrival.
The incident was subsequently reported to the police and a team of police personnel was dispatched to the house of the girlfriend.
During a search in the house, the police found a bag which the girlfriend claimed belonged to the deceased.
They found some medications, including some tablets and capsules, two mobile phones and cash of GH¢160 in the bag.
It was also suspected that he took four of the capsules believed to be painkillers.
When the Police Administration was contacted, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Accra Regional Police Command, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Mrs Effia Tenge, confirmed the incident.
However, she said, the police could not attribute the cause of death to the sexual intercourse between Divine Avortri and his lover.
She indicated that they could only confirm the cause of death after an autopsy had been carried out.
The body of the deceased had since been deposited at the Police Hospital morgue, in Accra.
