However, the majority of the thousands of mourners defied the laid-down safety protocols such as the wearing of nose masks and social distancing.
Since then, many concerned citizens, opinion leaders and professional bodies, including the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), have expressed displeasure about the breach of the safety protocols.
The GMA said the incident called for investigations since the teeming mourners at the community was a recipe for the spread of the virus.
A source at the Regional Police Command, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Kumasi, confirmed that some family members of the late Sir John were officially invited on Thursday, June 10, to assist with investigations.
Mr Charles Owusu, a representative of the bereaved family, in an interview, confirmed the invitation by the police and said they were ready to cooperate with the law enforcers in their enquiries.
Dignitaries at the funeral included a government delegation and representatives of the various political parties.
Born in 1952, ‘Sir John’, a former General-Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, died at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital on July 1, 2020.
