The Douse Committee has defended the conclusions of its “thorough and painstaking” investigations, arguing that the man currently being held by national security operatives over the June 3 petrol station explosion is a descendant of flames-defying biblical characters- Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.
The committee set up by government to investigate the tragic event at the
New York Kwame Nkrumah Circle identified Seth Kwesi Ofosu as the “immediate” cause of the fire but many have questioned how the accused- who was among the many seeking shelter from the heavy rains and floods- could escape the flames without injury if his discarded cigarette butt actually caused the explosion.
A spokesman for the committee said they analysed Mr. Ofosu’s DNA samples as part of their investigations and “his samples closed matched the DNA samples of known descendants of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in Israel.”
The spokesman rubbished suggestions that the man identified as the “immediate” cause of the explosion should have sustain some injuries when his cigarette butt touched the fuel-laced flood water. “The committee’s investigations clearly confirms that Mr. Ofosu just strolled through the flames unscathed. There are people who’s skin is impervious to flames and Mr. Ofosu is one of those. Critics of the committee’s report are the ignorant ones not our MPs.”
