The Krachi East Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Francis Kofi Okesu, has been found dead in a hotel in Kumasi.
It is unclear what led the MCE to the Ashanti Region capital but his lifeless body was found in a room he had booked.
Police have begun investigations.
Mr Okesu was not only the MCE for Krachi East but also the Dean of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in the Oti Region.
