Poison Claims: Captain Smart must provide answers to my husband’s death John Kumah’s wife lodge official complaint with Ghana Police

In a tragic turn of events, Hon Dr John Kumah, the Deputy Finance Minister and Member of Parliament (MP) for Ejisu, passed away at the age of 45 in the early hours of Thursday, March 7, following a brief illness.

Information from the Kumah family indicates that the health of the former Deputy Minister deteriorated en route to Accra in an ambulance, leading to an unplanned diversion to the Suhum Government Hospital, where he succumbed, leaving behind his wife, Apostle Mrs Lilian Kumah, and six children.


Amidst the prevailing grief following Dr Kumah’s passing, a series of online videos surfaced featuring Captain Smart, host of Onua TV, alleging that the late MP and other prominent figures within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) were targeted victims of poisoning.

The maverick commentator specifically emphasised Dr Kumah’s continued struggles as a result of the alleged poisoning. Making audacious claims, he confidently declared possession of concrete evidence to support his statements, challenging any sceptics to dare him to unveil the proof.


This shocking revelation has prompted Apostle Mrs. Lilian Kumah, the late MP’s widow, to take decisive action.

To unravel the truth behind her husband’s death, she lodged a formal complaint with the Accra Central Divisional Headquarters of the Ghana Police Service, on Friday, March 8, seeking answers regarding the grave pronouncements made in the circulating video.


Apostle Mrs Lilian Kumah, wife of the late Deputy Finance Minister, John Kumah, is seeking clarification from media personality Captain Smart regarding allegations that her husband was poisoned.In an official complaint, she has asked the Ghana Police Service to ensure that the Onua TV presenter substantiates his claims about the circumstances leading to her husband’s death.

During a live TV programme, Captain Smart claimed that the Deputy Finance Minister, who died on Thursday, March 7, 2024, had been severely affected by food poisoning.

He also suggested that Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, known as Chairman Wontumi, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), was another potential target.

In a statement, the widow expressed that these allegations are intensifying their existing distress, labelling them as “misinforming and unfortunate”.

Apostle Lilian is urging the police to probe these claims to clarify the speculative narrative surrounding her husband’s death.

“Apostle Mrs. Lilian Kumah, the widow of the late John Kumah is reportedly seeking answers, through the Ghana Police Service, from Captain Smart, a TV and Radio presenter at Onua TV, on statements the latter reportedly made about the health battles of the now deceased Deputy Finance Minister.

“The widow’s quest for investigations into the claims by Mr Smart is likely to set aright the emerging conspiracy discourse surrounding the lawmaker’s passing while signalling to other persons without basis to desist from further publishing spurious or unfounded allegations on the matter.”

JOHN KUMAH’S WIDOW DEMANDS ANSWERS FROM CAPTAIN SMART AMID POISONING ALLEGATIONS

Apostle Mrs. Lilian Kumah, the widow of the late John Kumah is reportedly seeking answers, through the Ghana Police Service, from Captain Smart, a TV and Radio presenter at Onua TV, on statements the latter reportedly made about the health battles of the now deceased Deputy Finance Minister.

On 21st February 2024, Onua TV published a video in which the presenter alleged that the Deputy Finance Minister, was severely suffering from the effects of food poisoning while other politicians were targets. The presenter also raised caution about alleged plots to assassinate or defame other persons with political, religious, and business interests; allegations which have heightened anxiety among citizens and political stakeholders alike.

In a complaint to the Police, Mrs Kumah has indicated the allegation by Mr. Smart as misinforming and unfortunate, adding to the suffering and pain of the family of the late Mr. John Kumah, who doubled as the Member of Parliament for Ejisu and a Deputy Finance Minister. She has additionally requested the Police to investigate the basis for the claims by Mr. Smart.

The lawmaker passed away in the early hours of 7th March 2024 from causes that are yet to be revealed to the general public.

The widow’s quest for investigations into the claims by Mr Smart is likely to set aright the emerging conspiracy discourse surrounding the lawmaker’s passing while signalling to other persons without basis to desist from further publishing spurious or unfounded allegations on the matter.

The development further adds a layer of public concern on the frequent release of sensitive and accusatorial information by Mr. Smart, often with threats of revealing full evidence but stopping short of same.
