Yakasi (W/R), October
4, GNA-A thirteen year-old boy from Yakasi, near Enchi in the Aowin
Municipality of the Western Region has committed suicide.

According to a police
report, Joseph Ackah’s body was found hanging in an uncompleted building close
to where he lived.

Deputy Superintendent
of Police (DSP) Ebenezer Anim Ofori, the Enchi Divisional Crime Officer, told
the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that, Joseph lived with his grandmother at Yakasi.

He said on Sunday
September 23, 2018, around 1600 hours, the deceased’s grandmother sent him to
purchase some items for her.

DSP Anim Ofori said,
the deceased returned home later empty handed and when the grandmother
questioned him, he failed to utter a word and left the house.

The Divisional Crime
Officer stated that as it was getting dark and there was no sign of Joseph, the
grandmother reported the case to the Enchi Police, and after a vigorous search
the Police found the young boy the next day in an uncompleted building kneeling
with a rope around his neck.

He was reportedly
dressed in a pair of green shorts to match with stripped pink Lacoste.

Mr Anim Ofori said
when the Police examined the deceased they realized he had defecated on himself
and there were scratches on his neck.

He said the body was
thereafter retrieved and deposited at the Enchi Government Hospital Mortuary
for preservation and autopsy.

The Divisional Crime
Officer emphasized that a post-mortem carried out on the body indicated that he
died out of strangulation.

Mr Anim Ofori said the
body has since been released to the family for burial.
