“Preliminary investigations conducted indicate that the deceased closed from work at 3:00 pm,” the Techiman District Police Crime Officer, ASP William Abayateye said, as quoted by Citinewsroom.

“We found out that his wife, who is also a teacher was waiting for him to come around so they leave together. Upon waiting for some time, the wife decided to go home and prepare dinner.”

“While preparing dinner, the wife asked their 11-year-old son to dump some refuse outside. The boy got to the refuse dump, only to find his father hanging on a mango tree. He raised an alarm which drew people to the scene.”

ASP Abayateye said the Police has launched an investigation in a bid to unearth what exactly led to the headmaster’s death.

He noted that the deceased did not leave behind any note, which makes it difficult to ascertain what triggered the action.
