Police arrest girlfriend of dead Kessben FM journalist

A 37 year-old woman is being held and questioned by the police in the Effiduase district in Ashanti region over the death of the Kessben FM’s presenter, Confidence Baah. The woman, Florence Osei, alias Akua Birago is apparently the ‘long-time girlfriend’ of the radio presenter.

She is said to have spent the night with the deceased on Saturday, before his aunt found him unconscious on Sunday. The two had apparently been in a relationship for about 8 years, and Akua Birago admitted to spending the night with on Saturday but said she left him at about 4:30 am on Sunday.

According to the lady, the previous night, she along Confidence and his uncle visited a number of drinking pubs in Effiduase and Juabeng area.

Akua said that they returned to Confidence’s residence where she spent the night with but they did not engage in sexual intercourse as the presenter seemed too weak from all the heavy drinking, although that part of her claim is currently being investigated by the police. Police have said Akua Birago is a suspect who will remain in custody pending the autopsy on Baah’s body on Monday.

Confidence Baah was found by his aunt on Sunday morning on her way to church, and was immediately rushed to the emergency unit of the Effiduase Government Hospital. He was pronounced dead only minutes after arriving at the hospital.
