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

Odeefo Akyin VIII, the Paramount Chief of the Ekumfi Traditional Area, has refuted allegations that he sent delegates to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to request that the late President John Evans Atta Mills’ autopsy be conducted.

On January 13, 204, the family of the late former president, Professor John Evans Fiifi Atta Mills, requested the late president’s autopsy report from President Akufo-Addo.

They conveyed worry about the unidentified reason for his demise and underlined the significance of getting the report for historical documentation and closure.

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.”
