Public Relations Officer (PRO) for the Presbyterian Church of Ghana Reverend George Larbi says the 60-year-old man, who bonked himself to death, was not an elder of the Church.
The late William Osae-Ansah of Ascension Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana in Koforidua in the Eastern Region was reported to have booked a hotel at Nkrukan two weeks ago.
He allegedly decided to sneak in with a 40-year-old woman, who is said to be a member of his church in order for both to satisfy their lustful pleasures.
Unfortunately, he met his untimely death.
Speaking to Bright Akwesi Asempa on Onua FMâ€™s morning show, Yen Nsempa, Reverend Larbi pointed out that the late William Osae-Ansah was a full-time treasurer of the church and not a Presbyter.
â€œThe crux of the matter is that, the man was not a presbyter in the church, I want to put it on record.
â€œHe was a full time treasurer who was bound for retirement by the end of June.â€
Reverend Larbi further added that the late treasurer occupied this position for the local congregation and at the district level.
He also revealed that upon hearing the news, he contacted the Koforidua-based resident pastor, who explained that the late William Osae-Ansah was supposed to go to the churchâ€™s office in the morning but he called the office to seek permission in order to go for his medication at the hospital.
He also sought permission to go to the bank to make some withdrawal for the church hence they were looking forward to his return after those errands until they heard news of his death.
The deceasedâ€™s car used that morning was, however, found at the Ghana Commercial Bank.
