    Son of NPP stalwart Prof. Adu Boahen robbed and killed at East Legon residence

    Christopher Adu Boahen, the son of the historian and New Patriotic Party stalwart Professor Albert Adu Boahen, has lost his life after armed robbers attacked him at his home in East Legon, a suburb of the capital in the Greater Accra Region.

    The armed robbers are said to have broken into his house, ransacked his home and killed him in the process.

    The late Christopher Adu Boahen was a physically challenged person.

    In a post on Facebook, his 1995 year group at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), where Christopher studied electrical engineering, announced that some “wicked persons” had taken his life.

    “Sad to announce the untimely passing of our classmate, Christopher. Wicked persons entered his home, ransacked the place, and robbed him of his life. His home, at East Legon, has been barricaded by the police and declared a crime scene.

    “May the soul of our brother find rest in the Lord. Bad news for a Monday morning but let’s keep our spirits up and look forward to a great week,” said the post announcing the death of Christopher Adu Boahen.

    The deceased man’s father was the NPP’s presidential candidate in 1992, in the first elections held in Ghana after the country’s return to democracy under the Fourth Republic.

    Christopher Adu Boahen was a brother of Charles Adu Boahen, who served both as a deputy minister for finance and then as minister of state at the Ministry of Finance in the Akufo-Addo government. Charles Adu Boahen resigned from government in November 2022.
