POLICE have launched investigations into the circumstances surrounding the sudden death of the headmaster of Kofi Agyei Senior High School (SHS) at Bampanase near Kumasi after enjoying meals prepared by the Home Economics Department of the school.
The headmaster, Mr Nyame Kwarteng, popularly called Nyame K., died on the way while being rushed to hospital in the early hours of Saturday.
Family members suspect foul play with some attributing it to poisoning.
However, police said it was too early to apportion responsibility for the death.
Police Superintendent Comfort Boateng, Kwabre District Police Commander, told the Daily Graphic that they were awaiting autopsy report before taking the next line of action.
“At the moment we cannot say whether it was food poisoning or deliberate poisoning and we would all have to wait for the autopsy report,’’ she said.
Mr Kwarteng had enjoyed the meals prepared by the Home Economics Department of the school during one of their practical sessions last Friday.
When he got home, he could not take dinner and went to bed only to die .
The deceased who looked hearty when he went to bed the previous night shouted for help in the night complaining of severe abdominal pains.
His wife who was sleeping by him woke up to find him foaming in the mouth.
He died on the way while being rushed to hospital and the body has since been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
