Prostitutes, junkies take over Asomdwee Park

The final resting place of late President, John Evans Atta Mills, Asomdwee Park has been taken over by marijuana smokers and prostitutes, a family member has revealed.

Mr Paul Ansah Ackom, spokesperson for the family of the late President said the present state of the first presidential mausoleum is nothing to write home about as prostitutes, wee smokers, cattle and rodents have invaded the place.

“I visited Asomdwee Park on Saturday, June 8, 2019 and what even killed my soul was when I saw a man sitting on the tomb and smoking wee. I was really hurt,” he bemoaned.

Mr Ackom wondered why there would be security breaches at such an important state facility which also serves as a tourist site.

He revealed how the tomb of the humble late Professor had been exposed to the vagaries of the weather with its metallic cover developing grim cracks.

What even shocked him, Mr Ackom said was a facility opposite the tomb meant for a library being turned into a hub for prostitutes.

Based on the sorry state of Asomdwee Park, he said the family is considering moving the mortal remains of late Mills to his hometown for a befitting burial.
