Doctor Demands Another Post Mortem On Koo Fori’s Wife

By Hi Newspaper, September 7, 2010

Last week we promised to bring you update on the investigation involving the ‘strange’ death of Koo Fori’s wife, Mary Nana Aba Karikari who passed on about two weeks after she was operated on, during labour, at the Medifem Hospital & Fertility Centre, Dzorwulu in Accra.

Latest information reaching Hi Newspaper has it that three nurses of the above medical facility were last Friday invited to the Sakumo Police Station for questioning in relation to the investigation.

When Hi visited the Larshibi Funeral home in Accra where the body is been kept pending (investigation and) burial, we gathered that another autopsy test has been requested by Dery & Co, lawyers of the investigated Doctor Bamful of the said medical facility, who doubles as a top gynecologist at the 37 Military Hospital.

When we met with Koo Fori at Radio Gold on Monday, he asked that we waited till after the investigation or even after the burial for his comments: “Nothing would bring back my wife, not even the best of investigations. Moreover, I didn’t report the Doctor or the hospital to the police, the security people thought they saw the need for an investigation due to circumstances surrounding her death”, he said.

Last week, Hi newspaper broke the news that a post mortem report, according to our source, allegedly indicts one Dr. Bamful of negligence on duty while operating on Koo Fori’s wife during labour. “She suffered cardiovascular death among other explanations related to a blood vessel blockage”, Hi Newspaper learned.

Literally, according to our source, ‘almost all the waste that was supposed to be removed after birth was kept in the stomach, including the placenta”.

The late Mary Nana Aba Karikari, wife of comedian/broadcaster/actor radio presenter, Samuel Seth Kwabena Kyere Karikari aka Koofori, died on Saturday August 21, 2010.

Wake keeping and funerals have been scheduled for the Trade Fair on weekend October 8 and 9th, a week after the funeral of music giant Mac Tontoh in the Ashanti region.
