A mobile money vendor has allegedly taken his own life following the discovery of a significant sum of money missing from the business.
The 22-year-old who has been identified as Abdul Rahman Acquah is said to have committed suicide after he found out that GHC 3,500 of the money he was using to run the business has gone missing.
This tragic incident happened at Assin Kruwa in the Assin South district. Reports indicate that the deceased went missing on Tuesday, June 8, at about 03:00 pm and was never found.
Kwaku Quansah, uncle to the deceased, in an interview, said a thorough search was conducted within the community and district but was to no avail.
He further said all efforts to reach and find him proved futile until officers of Kakum wildlife division intervened.
A search party was therefore conducted to trace the whereabouts of the deceased. Through the search party he was found dead in a thick forest near the community. He was reported to have hanged himself on a tree with a copper wiring cable in the bush.
The Police, upon the tip-off, rushed to the scene, and the body was then moved to the Abura Dunkwa Hospital morgue for autopsy and preservation.
However, reports by the hospital revealed that there were no signs of body violence.
Quansah disclosed that the boss of the deceased was demanding for the missing money or he would get him arrested hence, suggested his death might be out of frustration.
