The autopsy report by the police shows that Mahama Adams died from extensive acid burns.
An autopsy report has indicated the Upper East Region Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mahama Adams died of extensive acid burns and shock lungs.
The Police made the report known on Tuesday, when Gregory Afoko, junior brother of NPP Chairman, Paul Afoko was brought before an Accra Circuit Court.
Superintendent Francis Baah told the court the deceased person died from "shock lungs and extensive acid burns," and preferred murder charges against the suspect.
According to the Police charge sheet, Gregory Afoko was arrested after he and one, Asabke Alangdi laid ambush at Adam Mahama’s residence and poured a substance believed to be acid on him. “…the suspects poured the substance…on his head, face and other parts of his body and fled on a motorbike.”
“When asked to lead Police to the house of the second suspect [Asabke Alangdi], he rather took them to the father’s house. Police later located the house of the second suspect but he got wind of the impending arrest and absconded with his wife leaving behind their baby,” he added.
Meanwhile, an Accra Magistrate Court has remanded Gregory Afoko to Police custody. Read more Paul Afoko's brother charged with murder
