The Municipal Chief Executive for Krachi East in the Oti Region, Francis Kofi Okesu, has been found dead in a hotel room in Kumasi.

Police found his lifeless body in a supine position in bed naked with his left arm hanging beside the bed on Sunday.

A careful examination of the body by health professionals found no marks of violence, but traces of spermatozoa on his thigh.

There were little drops of spermatozoa from the penis suggesting possible engagement in sexual act shortly before his death.
Checks reveal the MCE had checked into the hotel room at the late hours of Friday, September 2 with his driver who later left to lodge in a different hotel.
The deceased was however not seen the day after checking into the hotel and efforts to reach him proved futile.

Investigations established that driver of the deceased, Sylvester Attah could also not reach him on the scheduled day of return to Dambai which was on September 4.

An official complaint was lodged with the police by the Manager of the said hotel in Kumasi. Subsequently, the police had to break into the room only to find the body of Mr Okesu.

The Regional Crime Scene team of the police proceeded to the crime scene for investigations to commence.
Police sources say they have conducted a search of the room but have found nothing incriminating so far.

Meanwhile the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah and Municipal Chief Executive of Oforikrom, Abraham Antwi and other security operatives have been to the scene.

The body has been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital mortuary for preservation and autopsy.
