The Mempeasem polling station branch of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been hit with a tragedy as its polling station organizer has died under some bizarre circumstances.
The NDC’ polling station’s youth organizer at Mempeasem in the Essikado-Ketan constituency of the Western Region was found dead in his room last Thursday.
Abass Seidu was found dead in his room after neighbours realized that some unpleasant smell was coming from the direction of Seidu’s room at Mempeasem.
A former youth organizer of the Essikado-Ketan constituency of the NDC, Kofi Wayoe confirmed the sad incident.
He explained that Abass was believed to have travelled for four days but the family did not know where he went.
He indicated that sometimes the deceased will travel outside the area without informing the family where he was going.
“The reason we could not realize earlier that Abass had died was that Abass always travelled without notifying anybody including his family members”.
“So when we did not see him or hear from him for four days, we thought he had travelled as usual,” he noted.
He said when some residents forced the door open after smelling the stench coming from the deceased room, they saw the lifeless body of Abass Seidu lying in a supine position with no bruises on his body.
He said since Abass, was a Muslim he was buried on the day the body was found- Thursday, June 3, 2021. He was 35.
Meanwhile, the case has been reported to the Essikado-Ketan Police who are investigating to unravel the circumstances under which Abass Seidu died.
