Story: Kwame Owusu Asante Shadrack

A 22-year-old Mobile Money Merchant has allegedly committed suicide at Assin Kruwa in the Assin South District of the Central Region.

Reports revealed that the deceased, Abdul Rahman Acquah went missing on June 8, 2023, at about 3:00pm and never returned home.

Speaking in an interview with Rich Fm and Angel News’ Shadrack Owusu Asante, the uncle of the deceased, Mr. Kwaku Quansah who doubles as the Abusuapanin of the town explained that a thorough search was conducted by the community members but all efforts to locate the deceased proved futile.

However, Personnel of the Wildlife Division at the Kakum National Park at Assin Kruwa Camp, together with the deceased family and some community members on June 9, 2023, continued the search to the forest and subsequently found the deceased hanging on a tree with a copper wiring cable.

The police at Nyankumasi Ahenkuro upon receiving the information rushed to the scene to convey the body to the Abura Dunkwa District Hospital Morgue for preservation and postmortem.

“Examinations conducted on the body showed no signs of violence”.

Although investigations are underway by the police to unravel what could have led to the death, unconfirmed reports suggest the deceased might have died out of frustration.

A resident who spoke on condition of anonymity disclosed to Shadrack Owusu Asante that the deceased had earlier threatened to commit suicide due to the loss of his money worth Gh¢3,500.00 belonging to his business owner.

He claimed the  boss of the deceased was on his (deceased) neck demanding the money and further threatened to get him arrested.
