A twenty-seven-year-old medical doctor of the Nkawkaw Kenop Care Hospital, identified as Dr Enock Ofosu Boakye, was found dead in his car which was submerged in the Okwe stream, near the Akuse Junction, in the early hours of Monday.
With the assistance of personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service at Kpong and some members of the Okwenya community, ASP Ackah said the body and the Toyota Corolla, with registration number GE 9954-14, were retrieved from the stream.
He said preliminary investigation at the scene showed that Dr Boakye was coming from the Somanya direction towards the Akuse Junction when the incident occurred.
ASP Ackah said when the police searched the pockets of the deceased, they found the car’s ignition key in his back pocket.
According to the District Commander, Dr Boakye might have removed the ignition key when he fell into the stream with the car.
He said the body had been deposited at the Akuse Government Hospital for autopsy.
