A twenty-seven-year-old medical doctor of the Nkawkaw Kenop Care Hospital was found dead in his car which was submerged in the Okwe stream, near the Akuse Junction in the Eastern Region.

The victim, identified as Dr Enock Ofosu Boakye, was found in the stream in the early hours of Monday, Daily Graphic reports.

The Akuse District Commander of the Police, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Francis Ackah, said around 4:30 a.m. Monday, the police received a distress call from a community member from Okwenya in the Lower Manya Krobo Municipality in the Eastern Region that someone had been found dead in his car in the Okwe stream.

He said the police, after arriving at the scene noticed the traffic indicator lights of the car in the stream.

ASP Ackah said the body and the Toyota Corolla, with registration number GE 9954-14, were retrieved from the stream with support from personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service at Kpong and some members of the Okwenya community.

The ignition key was however found in the pockets of the deceased, he said.
