In an interview with the doctor who saw him give up the ghost, he said Kofi B was “restless and had a very High Blood Pressure (BP). His BP was around 150/120. He had difficulty in breathing and had profuse vomiting.”
The doctor added that, “his body is being sent to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital. A postmortem will be conducted to know the real cause. For now we don’t have the authority to confirm what killed him.”
