Fuseni Mumuni who has served as a close protection officer to the second lady for over 5 years met his untimely death on Saturday, January 13.

The incident occurred when a commercial vehicle collided with one of the vehicles in the Second Lady’s convoy as they were returning from Bonwire in the Ashanti region.

The Director General of the National Lottery Authority (NLA), Sammi Awuku joined the many officials to bid Fuseni Mumuni farewell

Mr Auwku told Citi News in an interview “This is one of the strong patriots that I know. This is somebody who on any day when there is a call to duty, he is present and he makes himself available and he supports. He died in the line of duty.”

To the family, he noted “The loss is irreplaceable but may this God who keeps the orphans, the widows and the poor comforted, comfort them. And we pray for the repose of our brother’s soul.”
