It has been gathered that a female British national has been found dead in a room at Mac-Dic Royal Plaza Hotel in Koforidua, the Eastern Regional capital.
The body of the deceased has been taken to the Police Hospital in Accra by the Homicide Unit of the Ghana Police Service for postmortem.
The deceased was said to have died in the bathroom.
Information gathered by Daily Guide indicates that the woman checked into the hotel with her Ghanaian husband, a pastor, on 16 March, 2015 and were scheduled to check out on 21 March, 2015.
Reports claimed that the pastor, whose name was not yet known as at press time yesterday, was invited from the United Kingdom (UK) for a three-day revival programme by a church in Koforidua. He reportedly left the wife in the hotel room the following day and allegedly told the workers not to disturb his wife; so until she called for their services they should not enter her room.
Sources at the hotel told Daily Guide that the officials of the hotel were compelled to force open the door of the room after the time for her checked out had elapsed, only to find the lifeless body of the British lady in the bathroom.
The pastor has been arrested by the police to assist in investigations.
The Eastern Regional Police Public Affairs Director, ASP Nketia Yeboah, confirmed the incident to Daily Guide when contacted, but declined further comments, adding that the case had been taken over by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service in Accra.
The Chief Executive Officer of Mac-Dic Royal Plaza Hotel, Nana Agyei Twinin, said the hotel was cooperating with the police to investigate the incident.
He further hinted that the hotel was ready to provide the necessary evidence to unveil the truth.
