“Michael’s death was unnatural”- Autopsy Report reveals
Shaip Africa Foundation and the National Alliance for Nzema Development have sighted a leaked Autopsy report from the department of Pathology at the Korlebu teaching hospital reportedly indicating that the death of Michael Derry was unnatural.
The report sighted that, Mr. Michael Derry died of “Bilateral Lower Lobar Preumonia, Wounds Sepsis and Severe Burns” after examining the body.
The Illegal gold miner Michael Derry, alias Budo, aged 27, on December, 2021 was allegedly assaulted and set ablaze by security personnel of Adamus Resources, a mining company.
Mr. Derry later died on Sunday, December 26, 2021 at the Korlebu Teaching hospital.
Michael Derry, was arrested on Adamus’ mining concession at Anwia-Bokazo in the Ellembelle District of the Western Region by the company’s security personnel.
After allegedly molesting Derry, the security personnel poured fuel on him and torched him until he sustained life-threatening burns, according to an eyewitness.
Reacting to the current update, the group said, per the information available to them, they have urge the Western Regional Police command to expedite
the process to begin the trial of the six suspects, four of which are on remand to bring finality
to the criminal matter.
However, the CEO of Shaip Africa Foundation who doubles as secretary to the two groups have lauded Adamus Mining Ltd as a corporate entity for their conduct so far.
But, have task the mining company to ensure that their effort is crowned with a fair treat for the late Michael and family in line with equity and the Laws of the land before he is laid to rest with clearance received
already from the Nkroful circuit court based on the Coroner’s Act.
They are therefore urging the Ministry of Lands and natural resources and the Minerals Commission to act
accordingly at this point in line with the laws of Ghana.
The group have insisted to follow the horrific incidents until justice is served.
