The former president John Evans Atta Mills’ body was not desecrated, as claimed by the Coastal Development Authority (CODA).

The Asomdwe Park is now undergoing renovations by CODA.

Before beginning the rehabilitation work, CODA claims that it coordinated with the necessary state agencies in charge of state monuments.

“The Coastal Development Authority, acting upon a directive from President Akufo-Addo, prioritised the renovation of the burial grounds of the late Professor Atta Mills, former president of the republic.”

“We wish to state that the grave was not opened and therefore no desecration of the body of the former President, H.E John Evans Atta Mills, has taken place,” a statement from CODA said.

The declaration follows Samuel Atta Mills’ accusation that the Coastal Development Authority and Koku Anyidoho, a former adviser to the late president, had tampered with the previous president’s tomb. Samuel Atta Mills is the brother of the late president, John Evans Atta Mills.

He stated in a press conference on Tuesday, July 19, that the Atta Mills Institute is not recognized by the family.

He questioned what had been done with the late president’s mortal bones, whose departure would be commemorated later this month on the 10th anniversary.

The previous president’s brother claims that the current arrangement is improper.

“They have removed the tomb and what they’ve done is, they claim that they are rebuilding it. Now my question is this; we have traditions, why would you go and touch somebody’s grave without informing the family?”

He added, “Now the question I want to ask is this, now that you’ve gone to touch it, is the body still in that grave? What did you put in that grave? What kind of rituals did you perform over there? Why would you go and touch the grave without informing us? Who has the body now and that is the question that I want to ask Ghanaians?”
