A UK inquest for a British businessman whose death happened in Ghana 2 years ago has revealed that he was unlawfully killed and died of multiple stab wounds from a penkinfe-type weapon.
Dad-of-two Adrian Buchanan-Browne was found with his legs tied together and lying in a pool of blood at the Paloma Hotel in Accra.
The agricultural consultant from Canterbury, Kent, had earlier been seen having dinner with two women who later went to his room in the Ghanaian capital.
An inquest into Mr Buchanan-Browne's death at Maidstone Coroners Court ruled that he was unlawfully killed and died of multiple stab wounds from a penkinfe-type weapon.
His ankle was also broken and may have been stamped on.
The Belfast-born farming expert booked into the hotel on September 27th, 2014.
CCTV later showed two women approaching his hotel bedroom on September 28th, just minutes before he also went to his room.
A medical card was found in the room belonging to Diana Manu-Kesia, a woman he knew from an earlier visit to Sierra Leone and whom he had contacted to say he would be visiting Ghana.
The Ghanaian police were confident she was one of the women who entered his apartment, but she is believed to have since returned to Sierra Leone.
Interpol has issued an international warrant for the arrest of the woman identified in connection with the 59-year-old's death and police are yet to identify the second woman.
Mr Buchanan-Brown’s wife Binta Ishaku and daughter Amanda attended the inquest in Maidstone, but chose not to comment.
