The news of the funeral service organized for the deceased sparked reactions from a cross-section of Ghanaians.
It has been alleged that a building was constructed at Babianiha in the Brong Ahafo Region, to serve as a tomb.
On Thursday 26th October 2017, the Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party(NPP), Abronye DC, stated that Dr. Opuni transferred the corpse to South Africa, where it was lodged for 7 months.
This was in the course of the political analysis programme, Boiling Point, on Oman FM.
Abronye DC was expressing his views on the press conference organized by the minority in parliament, with respect to the dismissal of 11 COCOBOD employees.
He went ahead to fault the minority side for failing to disclose the reason why the 11 workers were sacked.
He explained that they lost their jobs because investigations by the Economic and Organised Crimes Office (EOCO) revealed they had approved the decision to release the money to Dr. Opuni.
