The wife of Mohammed Adjei Sowah, the Metropolitan Chief Executive of Accra, has died.
Madam Fuseina Seidu died at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) while receiving treatment, management of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) announced.
"It is with deep sadness that the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) announces to the general public the sudden demise of the wife of its Chief Executive, Hon. Mohammed Adjei Sowah,” the AMA stated in a statement.
The statement added that the tragic incident occurred on Tuesday, June 1 2021 at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) where she was receiving treatment.
Madam Fuseina Seidu was buried in line with Islamic tradition on Tuesday, June 1, 2021.
She left behind one child.
In an unrelated development, an official at the Jubilee House, the seat of Ghana’s presidency, was arrested for allegedly engaging in illegal mining (galamsey), YEN.com.gh has gathered.
The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, disclosed this in an article sighted on Starrfm.com.gh.
He named one Damoah as the Jubilee House official who was picked for allegedly engaging in galamsey.
“We are following closely. Nobody should make an attempt to cover up what his doings have been relative to his engagement or involvement in galamsey,” he warned.
“He was picked up by the National Security and they are trying to cover up but we are following very closely. So, the President is fighting his own people and we are beginning to know them,” he added.
In the meantime, an Accra High Court has admitted the six Chinese nationals arrested for engaging in illegal mining to bail.
They were arrested at Asankragua in the Western Region and applied for bail at the High Court after the Kaneshie District Court remanded them into police custody last month.
They have, however, not been able to meet the bail bond.
They are being held on six counts of possession of firearms without lawful excuse among others, the Ghana News Agency (GNA) reported as sighted by YEN.com.gh.
During the arrest, six pump action guns and cash of GHC1,292,180, sandy substances suspected to be gold dust, a yellow bar suspected to be a gold bar, and liquid substances suspected to be mercury, were found.
