“I was home when a farmer came to inform me that he has spotted a dead body in his rubber farm. We followed him to the farm and realized the young man has committed suicide by hanging on one of the rubber trees. We informed the police and they came for the dead body which had already decomposed,” Nana Kofi told Connect FM.

Adding, “The information we have is that he has been complaining about the attitude of his girlfriend for some time now. He has been complaining to his friends that after spending on the lady, she has jilted him for another man. He has been telling his friends about his plans to commit suicide because of the lady but nobody took him seriously until his lifeless body was found hanging on the tree.” 

Armstrong Arthur, the Assemblyman for the area said the deceased was working with Wang Kang Company but had not been seen in the past five days leading to the discovery of his decomposing body.
