The gruesome murder of 27-year-old Barbara Tommey in Orlando, Florida in the United States got many shaken.

Barbara who was shot multiple times by her estranged husband, Sylvester Ofori, died in the early hours of September 8, close to her business’ front doors.

A burial service was held in her honor and to lay her to rest, on Saturday September 26, 2020 and many, including the Ghana’s Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency Dr. Barfuor Adjei Barwuah, were present.

Whilst condemning the tragic circumstances under which Barbara died, Mr. Barwah explained that his presence was necessitated by same.

“My being here is a little abnormal because it is not usual for the country and the President to be represented at every citizen’s funeral but it is the demonstrably unGhanaian way of Barbara’s exit that has made it necessary for one to be here today.

“I never had the privilege of meeting Barbara…but from what has been said so far, she must have been somebody worth knowing. 

“It is that tragic way of her departure, that made it possible for me to come represent the President, the 33 million people of Ghana and all those who had goodwill, just to come and tell the family that we register our condolences,” he said.
