The brother of Lois Abena Koranteng, 24, who passed away mysteriously while traveling for work with her supervisor, has disclosed the reasons behind his decision to make the information public.

George Agyenim Boateng, in a phone conversation with GhanaWeb, voiced his dissatisfaction with the cumbersome inquiry into his sister’s death.

A month after the incident, on June 7, 2024, Lois Koranteng, a graduate of Kwame Nkrumah Science and Technology, passed away, the police have made no arrests and have not updated the family on the status of their investigation.

The police allegedly withheld the report from the family in order to aid in their investigation, according to George Agyenim Boateng, who also claims that the police autopsy reports from the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital were kept secret.

He expressed his belief that his sister’s case has been neglected and pleaded with the police to expedite their investigation into the incident.

However, he continued, this process has been delayed, which is why he brought the issue to the public’s attention.

“We don’t know if Icons Energy (the company) is conducting a private investigation. The only people we know are conducting investigations which we are aware of is the Ghana Police Service and we trust Ghana Police such that they can do their best to fish it out.

“But I brought it to social media because to me, I feel the matter is being sidelined and I needed people to support me to seek justice for my sister. At least the police should hurry with their investigations because we are in pain”, he stated.

In addition, George Agyenim Boateng said that Icon Energy, the business where his late sister was employed, had since paid the family a formal visit to offer their condolences.

Recounting the actual events, he said that on June 7, 2024, the late Lois Abena Koranteng called the family to let them know that she and a company driver were going on a business trip to Anaji, a township in Takoradi, Western Region.

On June 8, 2024, however, the company got in touch with the family to let them know about their relative’s passing.

It was reported that the relative was discovered in the swimming pool at first light but was pronounced dead when they got to the hospital.

In an effort to bring his sister’s death to justice, Agyenim Boateng is pleading with the public for assistance.
