Mills'' Funeral: "Massive Stroke" Killed Prez Mills .... Claims His Brother 8/11/2012

Dr Cadman Mills, brother of the late President John Evans Atta Mills has unwittingly disclosed to Ghanaians what might have led to the death of Ghana’s president.

According to him, President Mills suffered a "massive stroke" on that fateful day and try as the doctors did, they could not resuscitate him (Mills).

Giving the vote of thanks during the internment service held for his brother, Dr Cadman Mills thanked the people of Ghana for their words of comfort and the military for "such a stately funeral".

“I would like you, Mr President, to convey to the people of Ghana our deepest gratitude for the words of comfort, for the solace they’ve given us and for the honour done our dear brother. I would also through you “(Prez Mahama), like to thank the Armed Forces for such a stately funeral that they organized in his honour. Knowing what a modest man he was, he probably would have been a little embarrassed, but the family accepts wholeheartedly on his behalf,” he said.

The mortal remains of President Mills were buried at a specially-designated place at the Asomdwee Park (nee Geese Park), Osu Castle, adjacent to the Independence Square where a two-hour burial service was held Friday. The casket containing the president body was lowered into the grave at about ten minutes past 3pm.

A two minute-silence was observed in his honour.
Earlier, the Independence Square and the streets leading to the Square were soaked in a sea of red and black as mourners paid their last respects to the late president who distinguished himself as a “King of Peace”.

At the Geese Park, the casket was taken from the gun carriage and carried by Warrant Officers of the Ghana Air Force and placed on the grave.

The military buglers sounded the Last Post amidst the booming of a 21-gun salute by a detachment of personnel of the 66 Artillery Regiment of the GAF.
