Suicide cases for the past two weeks have dominated the main headlines in Ghana.

The most recent one to have hit the country is the case of a middle-aged man believed to be in his early 30’s who was found dead near a tree with a rope on Thursday, March 9, 2017 near the Achimota main overpass.

Eyewitnesses at the scene, however, suspect it was a case of murder rather than suicide because “the rope found around the body was “too thin” and “can’t be used to facilitate suicide.”

Personnel of the Tesano Police command have since barrowed the body of the deceased to the morgue for an autopsy to be conducted, as they launch investigation into the incident.
