Opoku Kwarteng, the father of late dancehall musician, Ebony, has given details of investigations carried out on his daughter’s death by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).
Mr Kwarteng has disclosed, probably for the first time, that the reports of the investigations as were made available to him indicated that there was no foul play in the accident which claimed her life.
The outcome of the investigations, according to him, also meant no one could be held accountable for the happening.
On Ebony’s driver who was the only survivor of the crash, Starboy Kwarteng, as he is affectionately called, said his request that there must be some further investigations about his account on the accident was turned down.
“After the former CID boss, Maame Tiwaa, presented the report, I questioned it but she told me the driver also risked his life so they have nothing against him.
I wanted him [the driver] to tell me something since he is the only soul alive after the incident but it did not happen,” he told Adom TV.
Mr Kwarteng added he petitioned the Inspector General for further investigations of which an investigation team was set but their response was shocking.
“The head of the team told me the boy should be let go because he is a young guy of 27years and when detained will die in cells. That’s the country we live in; Ebony was just 21 but the guy in question is 27; who is younger,” he asked.
He noted that the driver failed to fulfil the social contract between him and Ebony when he failed to take her safely to her destination.
Mr Kwarteng says he is perplexed the police were retraining the driver from giving a full account of what transpired on the night of her death.
Ebony died in a car crash on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway after visiting her mother on February 8, 2018, together with her friend, Franky Kuri and a bodyguard, Francis Vondee.
