The aeronautic engineer, Prince Kwabena Kumi, was on his way to surprise his mother during the Easter holidays when the police in Akroso seized his vehicle. They alleged he was driving under the influence of alcohol.
The body was discovered after a search was mounted by his family who had gone days without hearing from him.
Sister of the deceased, Abena Osei Debrah, told Joy News her brother was prevented three times from boarding a commercial vehicle to his destination by the police. His body was later found in a ditch.
According to the family, there were marks of assault on the body at the time of discovery. The body was conveyed to the Morgue by the Police pending further investigations.
The family said they later found his car parked at the Police station looking washed up. They believe the deceased was brutalized to death by the Police, an accusation the police deny.
Investigations are still ongoing to unravel how a 34-year-old man was mysteriously killed on Good Friday at Akroso in the Eastern Region.
The late Prince Kwabena Kumi was a graduate of the Shenyany Aerospace University in China.
Meanwhile, the National Executive Council (NEC) of old students of Abuakwa State College has learnt with shock the gruesome murder of Yaanom Prince Kwabena Kumi an engineer with Africa World Airlines.
