The son of the late Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, Sam Kofi Mills has expressed that he is curious to know the exact cause of death of his father five years ago on July 24th 2012.
According to the late president’s son he said neither he nor the family members have received any closure regarding the cause of death.
At the lustrum anniversary of the departed Atta Mills held at Asomdwee Park his son told reporters “…if someone approached me or if some sort of investigation might have to be done to find out, of course I will champion the course because he is my father and I want to know”.
“I still don’t know [the cause of his death], the hospital never gave the family any autopsy report to show that this and this was the cause of why he passed away, so, I don’t think any member of my family will be able to give evidence of how President Mills passed away,” he said at the Asomdwee Park where the memorial was taking place on Monday July 24th 2017.
Samuel Atta Mills, the younger brother of Atta Mills, on the other hand has taken a completely different stance regarding the matter.
The MP for Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem constituency also voiced his opinion regarding the matter saying that people who kept asking for the cause were opportunistic people.
He said they simply kept asking for the late president’s cause of death all for political purposes.
