A 50-year-old man has committed suicide by hanging himself to the roof of his apartment in Tema, Accra.

The deceased was identified as Kofi Emmanuel, a man who used to work as a mason in the community.

Some neighbours of the deceased said he recently separated from his wife, with whom he had three children.

According to a co-tenant, Michael Gozah, the deceased was very reserved and lived peacefully with him and other neighbors in the vicinity.

According to him, the deceased started drinking seriously following his separation from his wife.

“He is a very calm man and lived very peacefully with all of us until he unfortunately passed on this morning. We all suspect he has been thinking a lot ever since his wife left him,” Mr. Gozah told Citi News.
