Man Hangs, Leaves Behind 9 Children And Blind Wife
A 64-year-old man has been found dead hanging on tree in a farm at Adoko Jachie in the Ejisu Juaben Municipality of the Ashanti Region.
The deceased, who was identified as Daniel Assenso, was said to have left home on Friday, March 7 and never returned.
The Ejisu Divisional Police Commander, Supt. Stephen Kwasi Kwakye, who confirmed the incidence to ‘The Finder’, said that the deceased left behind nine children and a blind wife.
He said one of the children told the police that they had met on Monday morning to deliberate on how they were going to search for their father when one of their aunts said that she could smell a bad scent emanating from the farm, which alerted them to follow up.
They went to the farm only to find the man hanging on a tree.
He said the police was informed at that point, and they went for the body and deposited it at the hospital for preservation and autopsy.
According to the Ejisu Divisional Commander, they did not suspect any foul play in the act and would therefore seek the services of a judge to prepare a coroner’s report.
He said the report would be sent to the Attorney General’s Department for advice after which the body would be released to the family.
