Earlier, media reports had claimed that the entertainment critic and author died from diabetes.

However,  his younger brother, Ato Turkson who broke the sad news of his death, told TV3’s Owusu Worae  the family is disappointed and worried about reports that his brother died from diabetes.

According to him the reports are premature:

“Of course I have seen some media reports saying he died because of diabetes. The truth is that no one knows until you have done an autopsy to ascertain the true cause of death.

“Of course he was diabetic but he was managing it, so for someone to say he died from diabetes I believe is a wrong statement. Let’s all wait for the autopsy report so we can know what exactly caused his death,’’ Ato Turkson said.

Narrating what transpired that fateful day before the passing of  his brother, Ato Turkson recalled how it took them by surprise.

‘’It was actually a shock; we didn’t expect something like that. We have no idea what exactly is the cause of his death. The only thing I know is that he complained of having a cold and he was taken to hospital, the next thing we heard was that he’s passed, it is quite troubling,” Ato Turkson revealed.

Nana Turkson was 42 years and left behind a wife and three children.
