A teacher has allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself with a piece of cloth at Tinkong (Project Office area) in Akuapem North Municipality in the Eastern Region.
The incident occurred Sunday afternoon; July 18, 2021.
The body of the deceased identified as John Atta Asamoah Duodu (a twin) alias “O-Level” has been conveyed by the Adawso police to the morgue for preservation and autopsy.
The deceased did not leave behind any note stating reasons for his action. However, Freedom online has gathered that he was allegedly deceived to take a loan to invest in an online network marketing business called Qnet which turned out to be a scam.
He incessantly complained of hardship as a result of the huge deduction of his monthly salary.
His brother Benjamin Boateng said, “apart from the fact that he complained that he only takes home GHC 500 after deduction of his loan, he was hallucinating too so it seems evil forces were haunting him”.
Assembly Member for Tinkong Electoral Area, Samuel Abokyi has also confirmed the news.
“Yesterday we had a big funeral at Tinkong while at the funeral we had information that someone has committed suicide. Later, the police called me that the family had reported so I went there and the body was conveyed to the morgue. He hanged himself with a piece of cloth in a room”. Samuel Abokyi said.
