National Democratic Congress (NDC) polling station youth organizer at Mempeasem in the Essikado-Ketan constituency in the Western Region, Abass Seidu, has been found dead in his room.
The sad incident according to reports in the local media, occurred Thursday, June 3, 2021.
Abass Seidu was found dead in his room after neighbours realized that some unpleasant smell was coming from the direction of his room.
A former youth organizer of Essikado-Ketan constituency of the NDC, Kofi Wayoe confirmed the sad incident.
He explained that Abass was believed to have travelled for four days but the family did not know exactly where he went.
He indicated that sometimes the deceased will travel outside the area without informing the family where he was going.
“The reason we could not realize earlier that Abass had died was because Abass always travelled without notifying anybody including his family members”.
“So when we did not see him or hear from him for four days, we thought he had travelled as usual,” he noted.
He said when some residents forced the door open after smelling the stench coming from the deceased room, they saw the lifeless body of Abass Seidu lying in a supine position with no bruises on his body.
The case has been reported to the Essikado-Ketan Police who have launched investigations to unravel the circumstances under which Abass Seidu died.
He said the deceased has been buried according to Islamic customs.
He was 35.
