Some members of the late President John Atta Mills’ family say they have been informed by medical authorities about what led to his death.

President Mills passed away on July 24, but the circumstances leading to his sudden demise are still unclear.

Members of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) as well as others from the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) have called on government to explain the cause of the ex president’s death in a bid to dispel rumours.

Joy FM’s Central Regional correspondent Richard Kojo Nyarko visited the late president’s family home Sunday and reported that they know precisely what killed him but are not ready to discuss it because they are in a state of mourning.

He quoted the late president’s sister, Mary Maa Adjoa Denise as saying a post-mortem examination was conducted on Professor Mills’ body a day after his passing.

Richard said the examination was done in the presence of the president’s brother Cadman Mills and Samuel Mills, who is the only son of the ex president.

“…They (the family) know precisely what killed the president. They are in a state of mourning and they are not in a position to banter with anybody (as to) whether there is going to be a coroner’s inquest or not,” Kojo Nyarko further stated.
