An elder at the Ascension Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana in Koforidua was found dead in a room hours after he had lodged into a guest house at Aboabo, near Nkurakan in the Eastern Region, last Tuesday.
The 60-year-old man identified as William Osae-Ansah, who is also a treasurer at the church, was alleged to have checked into the Susu Sei Me Guest House about 9.30 a.m. with a 40-year-old woman, also a member of his church.
According to workers at the Guest House, they received the shock of their lives when the woman who accompanied the church elder into the hotel room rushed to the reception some few minutes later to report that her partner was unresponsive.
They said the Church elder was found naked and lifeless in the hotel room after engaging in hot intimacy with the lady whose identity wasn’t revealed.
Confirming the incident, the Eastern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Ebenezer Tetteh, said the owner of the guest house, Mr. William Adu Afari, alerted the Police about the shocking occurrence.
Ebenezer confirmed that the lady who accompanied the man was arrested and released after a post-mortem conducted on Osae-Ansah by the Koforidua Central Hospital revealed that he died of cardiac arrest and hypertension during the alleged sex act.
The body of the late Osea-Ansah has been deposited at the Koforidua Regional Hospital morgue, while all the money he had with him belonging to the Church has been retrieved by the Police for safekeeping, according to Graphic Ghana
