I’ve not delegated anyone to demand Prof. Mills’ autopsy – Ekumfi chief

The Paramount Chief of Ekumfi Traditional Area, Odeefo Akyin VIII, has denied claims of delegating persons to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to demand the autopsy of the late President John Evans Atta Mills.

The family of the late former President, Professor John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills, on January 13, 204, asked President Akufo-Addo to provide them with the late president’s autopsy report.

They expressed concern over the unknown cause of his death and emphasized the importance of obtaining the report for closure and historical record.

While addressing a press conference on Monday, Odeefo Akyin VIII said, “To set the records straight, the Paramount Chief Odeefo Akyin VIII has not elected nor delegated anybody nor any group of persons to His Excellency (H.E.) the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo or any other institution to demand an autopsy on the late Professor Mills for us, or on behalf of the family.”

He described attempts by groups and individuals linking the issue to the Ekumfi Chiefs as malicious.

“We therefore want to state emphatically that any attempt to link the Chiefs of Ekumfi to any such action is malicious, untrue and mischievous, and must be treated with the contempt it deserve. Ekumfi Nananom led by the Paramount Chief Odeefo Akyin VIII also wish to send a strong signal to anyone or group of persons purported to come from Ekumfi or elsewhere, and who allow themselves to be used to perpetuate such disgraceful and malicious act, may have to prepare to face the wrath of Nananom. The late Professor Atta Mills must be allowed to rest in peace.”

The Paramount Chief of Ekumfi also described the ongoing media banter between the family of Prof Mills and other individuals as “appalling and disgraceful.”

“The Nananom of Ekumfi believe that if the extended or any member of the family has issues with the report, they could jaw-jaw with the immediate family to have their disagreement settled once and for all, instead of the recurring media banter. Nananom wish to state that the raging back-and-forth wrangling is not just appalling but also disgraceful and disgusting; projecting the family as a disintegrated one.”
