Samuel Atta Mills, brother of the late Professor John Evans Atta Mills, has said the tomb of the late former President has been tampered with.
He accused the Executive Director of the Atta Mills Institute, Koku Anyidoho and the Coastal Development Authority of tinkering with the tomb.
“A group calling itself Atta Mills Institute that the family doesn’t even recognize, and Coastal Development Authority, have gone to break the grave of President John Evans Atta Mills.
“They have removed the tomb, and they claim that they are rebuilding it,” the Member of Parliament for Komenda-Edina-Eguafo Abirem said at press conference in Parliament on Tuesday July 19.
He added “My question is that, we have a family tradition. Now that they have touched someone’s grave, is the body still in there? Who has the body? Why will you touch the body without informing the family head? Under whose authority?
“Why do they want us to always go through grief? This is a former president, why will the government allow this to happen? This is an insult to the family and the nation.”
The Asomdwee Park is the burial place of Professor John Evans Atta Mills who died on the seat some 10 years ago.
