A 52-year-old man has reportedly taken his life after his wife divorced him.
The incident which took place around midnight on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, has thrown the Akyem Achiase community in the Eastern region into a state of mourning and shock as the deceased showed no signs of depression.
According to sources, the father of four identified as Kwame Kumi allegedly committed suicide after his wife packed bag and baggage from their matrimonial home due to his job loss.
The deceased is said to have been battling ill health which rendered him unable to discharge his duties at the work side forcing his employers to terminate his appointment.
A close family member of the deceased, Stephen Kwaku Agya Ofori who confirmed the incident, said the late Kumi was in his care to seek medical treatment for his severe waist pain which made walking very difficult for him.
Narrating the details of the incident, he said he woke up just around midnight only to realise the deceased was nowhere to be found in the room.
He then combed the immediate vicinity to no avail until word got him in the wee hours of the morning that a man had allegedly committed suicide in an uncompleted building nearby.
He then rallied family members who proceeded to the scene and found the deceased hanging lifeless.
A report has since been made to the police and the body taken to the morgue for autopsy and preservation.
The deceased middle-aged man left behind four children.
