A young man who died out of police brutality in Ghana has been buried in style to avenge his death. 22-year-old boy Richmond Osei aka Tawiah who died out of police brutality, was laid to rest on Thursday, with the family going diabolical for those responsible.
He was allegedly bru talized to death by the police on patrol duties after he was mistaken as a thief
His aunt said she had ‘nsamankom’ (a trance that enables the living to interact with the dead) and he instructed the family through her to put the items in the coffin to avenge his untimely death. The family contested the autopsy report which said he died of natural causes. The report concluded that Tawiah died of a heart attack.
In an interview, one of the family members said: “its all about tradition, we want him to haunt his killers by using these items, he shouldn’t allow them to go scot free, he should deal with them in equal measure, we want him to use the cutlass to butcher the police involved in the act and any management member of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) who also has a hand in his death.”
