Mother of late Asare-Baffuor Acheampong (KABA), Felicia Amoabeng has broken her silence about her son’s death and revealed that she cultivated this daily ritual of praying with the 37-year-old who died on her laps at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
Contrary to claims the ace broadcaster was rushed from a prayer camp to the health facility, she indicated that it was from his home to the hospital but pronounced dead while on admission.
“He never fell sick. I tried calling him on Thursday and demanded to know why he failed to call as we pray before leaving for work as this has become a daily ritual. I tried several times but could not get through so I quickly called his wife who gave the phone to him and he disclosed he was not feeling well so advised him to go to the hospital”
“At about 11:30 am I called again and he indicated he had attended the facility but was put on medication. Kwadwo asked to rest so I went off the line and called at about 1:30Pm when he said he was well and readying himself for work but insisted he rest if he was not feeling too well”
Later that evening I called again and he said he was well. On Friday morning I followed up with another call just to check on him but his response indicated he was getting better and I asked if he could go with me to an all-night service in the evening but he declined”, she revealed on Accra-based Kasapa Fm.
According to her, later that night he received a call demanding they rush him to the hospital which they did but his condition kept deteriorating until he died on Saturday morning on her laps.
She described the former host of late afternoon political show, Ekosii Sen on Asempa FM as one who never gets angry, very submissive and respects everyone.
“He champions the interest of others and it would be difficult to get any replacement. He is my only child I have none from nowhere”, she added.
