Christopher Adu Boahen, the son of the esteemed historian and former presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Prof. Albert Adu Boahen, was tragically killed by robbers at his residence in East Legon, a suburb of Accra.

Asaase Radio reported on March 18 that he was attacked by the intruders who broke into his home, resulting in his untimely death.

His 1995 year group at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), where Christopher studied electrical engineering, shared the heartbreaking news on Facebook, denouncing the actions of the perpetrators.

Christopher Adu Boahen, a sibling of Charles Adu Boahen, who previously served in government roles, including as a deputy minister for finance and minister of state at the Ministry of Finance in the Akufo-Addo administration, was deeply mourned. Charles Adu Boahen resigned from his government position in November 2022.

“Sad to announce the untimely passing of our classmate, Christopher. Wicked persons entered his home, ransacked the place, and robbed him of his life. His home, at East Legon, has been barricaded by the police and declared a crime scene.

“May the soul of our brother find rest in the Lord. Bad news for a Monday morning but let’s keep our spirits up and look forward to a great week,” said the post announcing the death of Christopher Adu Boahen.
