Residents of Ablekuma in the Greater Accra region were on Wednesday thrown into a state of shock after a 34-year-old man beheaded his three-year-old son in the area.

The man, Philip Jakpasu immediately hanged himself after committing the act.

It is unclear what the reasons behind his action were, but tenants and the landlord have told Accra-based Adom FM that the man was probably suffering from depression after he reportedly lost his job.
